Publisher's Summary

While on a visit to London, American genealogist Jefferson Tayte’s old friend and colleague dies in his arms. Before long, Tayte and a truth-seeking historian, Professor Jean Summer, find themselves following a corpse-ridden trail that takes them to the Royal Society of London, circa 1708.
What to make of the story of five men of science, colleagues of Isaac Newton and Christopher Wren, who were mysteriously hanged for high treason?
As they edge closer to the truth, Tayte and the professor find that death is once again in season. A new killer, bent on restoring what he sees as the true, royal bloodline, is on the loose…as is a Machiavellian heir-hunter who senses that the latest round of murder, kidnapping, and scandal represents an unmissable business opportunity.The Last Queen of England is a racing thriller with a heart-stopping conclusion. It follows on from In the Blood and To the Grave but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.

Queen Anne's Baby

Love a mystery where you can learn something new in the process.

The intrigue of a 300 year old Jacobin "plot" involves learning the ins and outs of the practice of Genelogy as well as a lessor known (for me anyway) piece of history - the reigns of Queen Anne and Queen Mary of Britain.

Good story that keeps you guessing right up to the end.
