The eleventh novel in the Ursula Blanchard series of Elizabethan mysteries. This is Ridolfi/Duke of Norfolk plot part 2. There is a very palpable sense of fear and oppression during the sequences set in Inquisition-ruled Madrid, the contrast between that and the physical beauty of the city being well drawn. During these scenes Brockley and, in particular, Dale are less sympathetic than usual, being pulled to the extremes of their character in a way that was a little shocking. I enjoyed the story as usual, though the pattern of Ursula saying she definitely wants to go on no further missions, but being talked/cajoled into doing so by Cecil, wears thin. There is at least one more novel in the series, and I hope it may be a little more varied. ( )

The book would be better (and only half as long) if the author gave up going over and over and over and over the things that happened in the past. ( )
