It is 1560, and Elizabeth Tudor has been on the throne for a year. Dr John Dee is her astrologer and consultant in the hidden arts...a controversial appointment in these days of superstition. Now the bookish Dee has been sent to Glastonbury to find the missing bones of King Arthur. With him is his Robert Dudley, a wild card...and possibly the Queen's secret lover. The town is still mourning the gruesome execution of its abbot, Richard Whiting. But why was he killed?

What is the secret held by the monks since the abbey was founded? The mission takes Dee to the tangled roots of English magic, into unexpected violence, necromantic darkness...and the cold heart of a complex plot against Elizabeth.

    " Took a while to get into this, but the second half, set in Glastonbury, brought back lots of memories. Turned out good! "

    " I enjoyed this mystery/history/fiction a lot but had wished that there was more to the big reveal at the end. I liked the setup and the resolve, but wanted more info or theory on the legend. What about the bones?!?!? What about the significance of the Tor or the astrological symbols??? "

    " Really enjoyed this, it helps having lived in Glastonbury for a bit, loved the idea of John Dee and Robert Dudley as an investigative team. Well written too. "

    " I don't often read historical fiction but was influenced by the Merrily Watkins books. It's a thriller set in early Elizabethan times in a Glastonbury recently bereft of its abbey and influenced by Arthurian legend. "
