A Traitors Death; The Fitzwarren Trials

The second book is well underway, and takes another colourful trip through Tudor England under the turbulent reign of Mary Tudor. Researching the next installment has been a true delight.

Pawn in Frankincense by Dorothy Dunnett
“With Jerott Blyth, innkeepers never shirked the proper discharge of their duties. To the doggedness of his Scottish birth, his long residence in France and his profession of arms had lent a particular fluency. He was black-haired, and prepossessing and rude: a masterful combination.”
