In 1546, Londoners are frightened as a serial killer beheads young women and dresses them in nun's garb with rosary. The victims were all loose so no one in power cared. However, the murders come to the castle when a member of twelve years old Princess Elizabeth's retinue is killed. She and two friends, physician's son Simon Maldon and Captain of the king's Welsh Guard Hugh Bellows, begin to investigate while trying to conceal the princess' role from her father, her ailing brother and her older sister. Their inquiry works as witnesses describe a tall man wearing a decorated cloak at several crime scenes. Still they have too many suspects while struggling with a lack of motive. The Key to this delightful royal historical amateur sleuth is readers will believe the tweener princess and her allies are credible as detectives as they investigate across sections of all social classes residing in London. Although Elizabeth has been an investigator in other series (Karen Harper comes to mind), fans will enjoy her as a mid sixteenth century Nancy Drew. Harriet Klausner

Elizabeth Tudor and Simon, a physician's son, set out to discover who is murdering, decapitating, and dressing young women in nun's garments on the streets of London. I found this novel fascinating in that the plots twists were interesting, the development of the characters was intriguing, the description of 16th century London was amazing, and the witty dialogue kept me interested from beginning to end. I especially loved the development of the relationship between Elizabeth Tudor and Simon, and how Elizabeth might have developed some of her tendencies and strategies when she became ruler of England (and why she surrounded herself with powerful and intelligent people). This is a novel that would be interesting to both teens and adults. And for those who are interested, the author has a book discussion page on her personal website that is really good for either book clubs or for teachers to use in their classrooms.

The historical aspect of the story was enjoyable. The character building was well paced, drawing the reader into their world effortlessly. The mystery aspect of the story was well executed; keeping the suspects as viable villains but shedding doubt to prevent an obvious choice. I can not wait to read the next one.
