February, 1571. Ursula is once more plunged into affairs of the state when she escorts her foster daughter Margaret to the Netherlands to meet her suitor. The queen's spymaster, Sir William Cecil, learns that the wealthy Italian banker Roberto Ridolfi will be hosting their forthcoming wedding - a man who he fears may once again be plotting to put Mary Queen of Scots on the English throne. But Ursula is also about to come face-to-face with her greatest enemy - and the exiled Countess of Northumberland is not the only figure from Ursula's past to put in a surprising appearance.

"The eleventh book in Buckley's Ursula Blanchard series has the heroine being tricked into infiltrating the household of Italian banker Roberto Ridalfi. Sir William Cecil believes Ridalfi may be conspiring to overthrow Queen Elizabeth and put Mary, Queen of Scots on the throne. Narrator Wanda McCaddon's dignified style of narration is particularly effective in Ursula's imperious moments. McCaddon makes her character extremely believable as the illegitimate half-sister of Queen Elizabeth. Ursula is not a woman to suffer fools, and McCaddon highlights that character trait beautifully. She also masterfully conveys the urgency of many of the situations Ursula finds herself in, creating an engaging listening experience. J.L.K. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
