Bloody Richard?

In a remote English manor house, modern admirers of the much-maligned King Richard III—one of Shakespeare's most extraordinary villains—are gathered for a grand weekend of dress-up and make-believe murder. But the fun ends when the make-believe turns more sinister . . . and deadly. Jacqueline Kirby, an American librarian on hand for the festivities, suddenly finds herself in the center of strange, dark doings . . . and racing to untangle a murderous puzzle before history repeats itself in exceptionally bloody ways.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Peters earned her Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago's famed Oriental Institute. She was named Grand Master at the inaugural Anthony Awards in 1986 and Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America in 1998. In 2003, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Malice Domestic Convention. She lives in a historic farmhouse in western Maryland.

From AudioFile:

Like a Haydn quartet, this book is a fresh and clever exploration of a classic form: an English house-party mystery. Williamson has a light, clear, classically British voice ideally suited to the narrative of the text. Her character voices are satisfactory. Few readers could speak as slowly as she does without sounding dull or overly deliberate. She seems to be inviting the listener to savor the story. This is appropriate for a well-written book, which is largely an exercise in style. She sounds . . . stylish. Listeners who like the style will find this a treat. J.N. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
