Death in the Forest is a crime novel with an historical background. It is set in England in the years following the Norman conquest. To make his New Forest a hunting preserve, William the Conqueror destroyed churches and villages, and it was believed that in revenge the forest would prove fatal to his sons. This is the story of their deaths - and of what lay behind them.
The story's heroine is Edith, a princess of Scotland and descendant of the Saxon kings of England.
In 1536, the murder of the princes in the Tower is still within living memory.… Brother Thomas of Croyland Abbey has an urgent mission - to find a new king and perhaps save the great abbeys of England from the destruction threatened by Henry VIII. The vital question he has to answer-who are the surviving Plantagenets? The search for a member of the royal house of York leads Brother Thomas across an England seething with rebellion - to the heart of the mystery surrounding the princes in the Tower....
Disgrace and Favour is a novel of life on the border in the dying years of Elizabeth I's reign and of intrigue and immorality at the court of King James. It is the story of the Queen's cousin, Sir Robert Carey, who was disgraced for marrying without her consent, of his struggle to restore his fortunes under her successor, and his realisation that favour among the hazards of a decadent court was even less appealing than a hard but untrammelled life in exile on the Border.
