About this title


Elizabethan England comes alive as its young queen struggles to stop a serial killer who uses fire as a weapon. From commoner to courtier, from the delights of rural England to the streets of teeming London, the queen and her coterie turn detectors in Karen Harper's acclaimed mystery series.

Smitten with spring fever, Elizabeth Tudor escapes London for fantastical Nonsuch Palace in the sweet Surrey countryside. There she hopes to relax and pose for the official royal portrait for which she is holding a competition. Elizabeth is both delighted and dismayed when her young court artist, Gil Sharpe, returns early from schooling in Italy, where he has also been spying for the crown.

But one of her artists is burned to death, and portraits of the queen are going up in flames. When she hears that her rival, the dangerous Mary, Queen of Scots, has been peering in mirrors and announcing, "I see the next queen of England!" Elizabeth summons her Privy Plot Council.

Has the arsonist been sent by foreign foes or is it someone in her own court? Or is the "running boy" apparition really a ghost out to avenge a terrible past tragedy caused by the Tudors?

Time is running out, because the enemy who stalks the queen means to destroy not only her portraits and artists, but her very life.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Karen Harper's Elizabeth I Mysteries
"Karen Harper weaves a thrilling blend of historical detail and intriguing mystery. Her Queen Elizabeth I possesses the fine detective's instinct of Sherlock Holmes."
- Lisa Gardner, author of The Other Daughter

"A walk side by side with one of history's most dynamic characters."
- Anne Perry, author of Slaves of Obsession

The Queene's Christmas
"Lively, abundant historical color"
- Kirkus Reviews

"A real treat for those who enjoy historical mysteries."
- Booklist

The Thorne Maze
"Tudor England's answer to V. I. Warshawski"
- Publishers Weekly

"The novel's true pleasure is the re-creation of Elizabeth I's court, the manners of the day, the fetes, the sumptuous clothes, all of which Harper brings wonderfully alive."
- Miami Herald

"Harper is to be commended for keeping true to what we know of Tudor history and for making the factions of Elizabeth's court clearer than many history books have done."
- Chicago Tribune

The Queene's Cure
"Strong writing coupled with rich details and the suspense of a murder or two . . . Harper's portrayal is most intriguing, transporting readers to a time many know little about."
- The Columbus Dispatch

The Twylight Tower
"Exquisite mastery of the period, lively dialogue, energetic plot, devious characters, and excellent rendition of the willful queen"
- Library Journal

The Tidal Poole
"Harper delivers high drama and deadly intrigue . . . Elizabethan history has never been this appealing."
- Newsday

The Poyson Garden
"Impressively researched . . . the author has her poisons and her historical details down pat."
