After his hair-raising adventures in London, Sir Robert Carey has finally tracked down Queen Elizabeth, who is about to make a state visit to Oxford. But instead of giving the Courtier his much-needed warrant and fee for being Deputy Warden of the West March with Scotland, Her Majesty orders him to investigate the most dangerous cold case of her reign--the mysterious 1560 death of Amy Dudley (née Robsart), unloved wife of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. Some thirty years back, the late Dudley was Elizabeth's favorite suitor and potential husband. Amy died at Cumnor Place, close at hand. The Queen has since been one of the most obvious suspects in arranging Amy's murder. This makes Carey deeply uneasy with his sleuthing role. He's further uneasy that his father, Elizabeth's cousin from the wrong side of the blanket, is clearly involved. Then someone manages to poison Carey with belladonna, which temporarily blinds him. Worse still, Sergeant Dodd, the man most often guarding Carey's back, has disappeared on the road from London. As the Queen's scandalous past collides with her magnificent State entrance into Oxford, can Carey rally in time to find both Dodd and the true murderer of Amy Robsart?

Carlisle, along the border between Scotland and England in 1592, was far from peaceful, but for Sir Robert Carey, the new Deputy Warden, it held some very special charms, generally female in nature. That is why he was thrilled to learn that the outlaw Grahams were plotting to kidnap Lady Elizabeth Widdrington: It gave him an excuse to ride after her to protect her, even if her journey was planned to bring her home to her husband. Carey's act of tarnished chivalry turns sour when he returns to Carlisle to discover that there has been a murder at the garrison, that his servant Barnabus is in the castle dungeon, and that Carey himself is being targeted for arrest for the murder of the paymaster. Unravelling the tangled web of deceit surrounding the murder, Carey becomes enmeshed in a knot of love and greed - striking much too close to home as he considers his own relationship with Elizabeth - that is ever-tightening around the neck of his servant and threatens ruin for himself. But even facing corrupt juries, blackmail, and intimidation, Sir Robert Carey remains certain of one thing: Living this way in the West Marches is still better than what might await him in London at the court of the other Elizabeth in his life: the Queen of England
