"Ursula Blanchard, lady-in-waiting and spy extraordinaire, returns in a new Elizabethan mystery steeped in suspense and historical detail." —Booklist November, 1569: Happily married to her third husband, Hugh Stannard, Ursula Blanchard is hoping to give up her undercover work for Queen Elizabeth l in order to enjoy domestic bliss. But when Hugh unwittingly endangers possession of his ancestral home, Ursula is forced to take on a seemingly hopeless, but handsomely paid, private assignment—which the queen considers the perfect cover for a covert investigation into a group of rebel barons plotting to put Mary, Queen of Scots back on the English throne . . . "Ursula is the essence of iron cloaked in velvet—a heroine to reckon with." —Kirkus Reviews "The worthy Ursula is an estimable heroine, and Buckley's confident mastery of sixteenth-century British history lends an air of authenticity to her cleverly spun adventures." —Booklist
