Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who was Elizabeth I's true father? Did Buckingham poison James I? And who was the Man in the Iron Mask?

These and a host of other tantalizing age-old mysteries that have caused speculation and scandal through the centuries are explored in this intriguing book. Using techniques of modern detection, Hugh Ross Williamson re-evaluates the evidence, examines character and motive, and uses the known facts of the cases to come up with solutions both intriguing and controversial. Shattering myths and propaganda, he exposes a grisly array of murder, lies, intrigue, and conspiracies. Discover the political frame-up surrounding the Gunpowder Plot, the secret identity of Charles I's executioner, Elizabeth I's involvement in the murder of her lover's wife, and much more.

Synopsis:

This is a title of historical "whodunits", in which the author uses techniques of modern detection to answer such questions as: Who was Elizabeth I's father?; Did Buckingham poison James I?; Who was the Man in the Iron Mask?; and who was King Charles I's executioner?
