A haunting historical murder mystery, set in the court of Mary Queen of Scots. It is 1566 and Mary Queen of Scots is in residence at Craigmillar Castle. But as rumours of treasonous plots abound, no one there can feel safe. Least of all Lord James Bothwell, who survives a murderous attack thanks to a lad by the name of Will Fellows. But what is surprising is that Will snatched the diamond-encrusted dagger not from the hands of an ambitious lord, jealous of Bothwell's close relationship with Mary, but from a woman, who then disappears into the night. Of the many ladies he knows, who would want him dead? His new bride Jean Gordon, only too aware of his infidelities? Anna Throndsen, the abandoned mother of his son William? Or perhaps one of the many lovers of Mary's dissolute husband Henry Darnley? When Bothwell's mistress Janet Beaton hears of the attack, she puts her steward Tam Elidor on the assassin's trail. And he must act fast because the attempts on Bothwell's life are about to escalate...But the enigmatic Tam is a mystery in himself, having arrived at Janet's castle months before with no memory of his name or previous life. All he does have are vague glimpses of the future - a future that looks dark for both Bothwell and his queen...

As a fan of historical fiction, I so very much enjoyed the three books of the Tam Eider Series and hope there are more.
Another good book by Alanna Knight..The details of that time in history is remarkable and truly enjoyable. A book well worth reading.
