The story moves along at a reasonable pace. It's nice to see a female taking the lead as the sleuth for a change as the majority of crime books tend to have a male main character.I must admit to having a very vague knowledge of history in the time surrounding Henry the VIIIth and it did make for quite interesting reading. I felt that the Author had done some research before writing this story and used some real life characters (Lady Katherine Bulkeley being one of them)and woven them into a fictional story.
I will look out for more books by this Author as it was the first one of her books that I've read. I would recommend this book to anyone who's a fan of historical novels.
