This is a good beach read for those who like historical mysteries. Accurately researched, fun, active, not deep. The book is set in a tense period, when Richard the Lionhearted is off on his crusade and is missing from the throne. He should be back by now, his ship should have docked a while ago, but nobody knows where he is. Penman does a good job of depicting the tension and the strategic struggles around the throne. I also like the way she draws Eleanor of Aquitaine, making her both subtle and strong.
