Elizabethan England comes alive in all its pomp and pageantry, deadly intrigue and scandal and fine feasting in Karen Harper s acclaimed mystery series featuring the young queen Elizabeth Tudor as amateur sleuth. An old English Yule has never been merrier or more mysterious. A New Year s celebration has never looked more joyous but been so potentially deadly. Fearing the 12 Days of Christmas of 1564 may be the last for her ailing, elderly friend, Lady Kat Ashley, Queen Elizabeth decrees a nostalgic, old-fashioned holiday. Delicious dishes for the table, holly and ivy, caroling, wassailing, mumming, and a Lord of Misrule to oversee it all are in the recipe for the revels. But one of the queen s kitchen staff is found as dead as the ornate peacock he was preparing for the feast. As more murders threaten customs, kingdom, and Christmas, Elizabeth and her diverse band of Privy Plot Counselors try desperately to solve the increasingly bizarre crimes. When the Thames freezes over and Londoners take to the ice for an elaborate Frost Fair. Elizabeth of England must outfox the diabolical demon who would kill not only the spirit of Christmas but the queen. N° de ref. de la librería BRI9781522603375

Sinopsis:

Elizabethan England comes alive in all its pomp and pageantry, deadly intrigue and scandal—and fine feasting—in Karen Harper's acclaimed mystery series featuring the young queen Elizabeth Tudor as amateur sleuth.

An old English Yule has never been merrier or more mysterious. A New Year's celebration has never looked more joyous but been so potentially deadly.

Fearing the 12 Days of Christmas of 1564 may be the last for her ailing, elderly friend, Lady Kat Ashley, Queen Elizabeth decrees a nostalgic, old-fashioned holiday. Delicious dishes for the table, holly and ivy, caroling, wassailing, mumming, and a Lord of Misrule to oversee it all are in the recipe for the revels. But one of the queen's kitchen staff is found as dead as the ornate peacock he was preparing for the feast.

As more murders threaten customs, kingdom, and Christmas, Elizabeth and her diverse band of Privy Plot Counselors try desperately to solve the increasingly bizarre crimes.

When the Thames freezes over and Londoners take to the ice for an elaborate Frost Fair. Elizabeth of England must outfox the diabolical demon who would kill not only the spirit of Christmas but the queen.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Karen Harper's Elizabeth I Mysteries

The Thorne Maze
"The novel's true pleasure is the recreation 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
"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

The Twylight Tower
"Harper's exquisite mastery of the period, lively dialog, energetic plot, devious characters, and excellent rendition of the willful queen makes this a pleasure for fans of historical mysteries" -- Library Journal

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

The Poyson Garden
"A walk side by side with one of history's most dynamic characters." -- Anne Perry, author of Half Moon Street
