Audible Editor Reviews

"Does for Elizabeth's reign what C J Sansom does for Henry VIII's." (Sunday Times)

Publisher's Summary

From Rory Clements, winner of the Ellis Peters Historical Fiction Award, comes The Queen's Man, the sixth in his acclaimed bestselling John Shakespeare Elizabethan mystery series.

England is a Judas nest of conspiracyIt is 1582, and the conflict between Protestant and Catholic threatens to tear the country in two. While Queen Elizabeth I holds the reins of power, there are those whose loyalty lies with her imprisoned cousin, Mary Queen of Scots. On his first major mission for Sir Francis Walsingham, the young John Shakespeare is ordered to discover a conspiracy to free the Stuart queen from Sheffield Castle.

All too soon, he realises that the tentacles of the plot reach deep into his native Warwickshire and threaten his own friends and family. His duty lies with Elizabeth - but how far will he go to protect those he loves?

    Was The Queen's Man worth the listening time?

    No !! With the mention of Queen Mary ,thought the story might focus around her.. Nope it didn't..


    Any additional comments?

    To many Dull people to listen too, the book was more like a "seek and find " story. Not thrilling at all..

    "Disappointing and unbelievable"

    Found the characters overblown, the story confusing, and this writer has obviously never travelled from Stratford to Sheffield. If he had, he would realise you couldn't get there in one day on a horse. Come on! It'd take about two weeks, as Sheffield is situated in seriously rough country. Crossing Snake Pass is a hard road even in a car. Coming up the east coast would take ages. Research next time? Sheffield's a great place to visit!
