Friends this is my review of the book To Kill a Queen b y Alanna Knight, which I read recently. This is the second 50p market stall Alanna Knight books, and was well worth the money. It could have been helped by the fact that I read a lot of the story using candle light due to the storm causing a power cut. It all helped create the right sort of atmosphere, helping to bring to life the Victorian drama unfolding in the pages.
The hero of the story is again Detective Inspector Jeremy Faro. He is on holiday in Deeside, but soon he is working by royal appointment, and is instructed to find out who has killed some of Queen Victoria's dogs, whilst she is staying at Balmoral.
Of course this is not the whole story, and soon he is investigating a plot to assassinate the Queen before she leaves Balmoral and returns to London. Along the way there are a couple of murders, and the closer Jeremy gets the more his life is in danger.
He is nearly drowned, then shot at, and his past catches up with him, as the chief suspect. Somehow the mystery of the dogs death must be linked to the potential attempt on the Queens life. Can he solve the mystery in time and save the Queen's life.
This was a very enjoyable atmospheric mystery, as book 8 week 6 fiction 8 (audio book 2) non fiction 0
