188 thought on “Queen & Country

  1. Old friends Another well written Hew Cullan book which was good reading from beginning to end In some places the storyline could have been developed but that might have made for a laborious read I liked the twist near the end.


  2. South of the BorderHew Cullan s previous adventure ended with him facing a horrific execution before being suddenly freed by agents working for Elizabeth I s spymaster, Francis Walsingham Spirited south of the border and incarcerated in London, Hew has slowly proved his worth to the English and is working towards being permitted to go home.Queen Country is dominated by the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots The book opens with an eruption of anti English feeling at a Scottish fair before stepping [...]


  3.

  5. I had reservations about this for a while, but I think if you approach it as an explanation of part of Hew Cullan s life and the results of that part, with a couple of minor mysteries at the end, then its historical detail and complexity are well up to the usual standard There is also a set up at the end for future problems, which is enough to keep me going It s worth pairing this with the short mysteries Shirley McKay is producing at the moment which keep the mystery desires satisfied until the [...]
