In this special prequel to Matthew Reilly’s The Tournament, Roger Ascham, the unorthodox tutor of Princess Elizabeth, is charged with tracking down a favourite prostitute of King Henry VIII’s who has gone missing.
Although a bit grizzly towards the end, I found that I did enjoy this mystery from Matthew Reilly.
Matthew has taken Princess Elizabeth (I) real tutor and woven a tale of mystery that is very good, with for me anyway the likable character of Roger Ascham.
This was a really good mystery with a good set of characters and well plotted and written.
I know Matthew has written The Tournament as the next full length mystery, but I would love to see more Roger Ascham novels and short stories in the future.
This was the audio edition that was an Audible UK ‘members’ freebie.
