About the Author

Neal Roberts and his wife live on Long Island, New York, where they have two grown children. Neal is a practicing attorney and adjunct law professor, and spends as much time as possible researching his next novel while enhancing his lawyer’s pallor. When he’s not writing Elizabethan politico-legal novels, practicing law, or teaching, he’s an editor of an international peer-reviewed publication in the field of intellectual property law. Neal is also an avid student of Elizabethan literature and politics, which subjects form the basis of his first novel, A Second Daniel. His analysis of Shakespeare’s Sonnet 121 has been extensively cited by some of the most important authorities seeking to identify the true author of the poems and plays attributed to William Shakespeare.

I just finished reading this second book in the series and have bought the third. I love the historical setting, vivid characters and intriguing plots. At times the machinations of those in power are a bit complex, but the novels are filled with action, romance, twists and turns. There is also a bit of humor now and then. If you enjoy historical mysteries, give this series a try.

An idle hours book. Somewhat predictable in plot.

Reviewed by Janelle Fila for Readers' Favorite The Impress of Heaven (In the Den of the English Lion Book 2) by Neal Roberts is a historical mystery that takes place in London in the 1600s. The story starts with Serjeant Noah Ames accepting the job to investigate the Earl of Essex for accepting a truce with Irish rebels. Noah notices a missing watermark on a map of English military positions in Ireland and becomes suspicious. When he shares this information with his friend Jonathan, the barrister, they begin to dig deeper into the mystery and possible conspiracy. Jonathan begins spending time with Noah's daughter, Lady Jessica, whose only concern is to marry into nobility. But with Noah's discoveries, Jonathan and Lady Jessica begin a perilous journey all over England that threatens their safety. They must find the answers...but at what cost? The Impress of Heaven is a well-researched and very engaging historical fiction piece. I absolutely loved the setting and found every detail to be stunning beautiful and accurate. Roberts did an excellent job of recreating this gorgeous historical world with enough subterfuge and underlying darkness to keep me completely engaged. The characters were very well-written and seemed realistic and authentic to their time period. I was immediately drawn into this intriguing story and wanted to know more about these characters, their world, and the mysteries within it. I didn't want to put this book down and was disappointed when the story was over because I enjoyed it so much.
