A female spymaster will face mortal danger to protect her husband and her queen. . . London, 1582: Mistress Rosamond Jaffrey, a talented and well-educated woman of independent means, is recruited by Queen Elizabeth I's spymaster, Sir Francis Walsingham, to be lady-in-waiting to Lady Mary, a cousin of the queen. With her talent in languages and knowledge of ciphers and codes, she will be integral to the spymaster as an intelligence gatherer, being able to get close to Lady Mary just at the time when she is being courted by Russia's Ivan the Terrible. However, there are some nobles at court who will do anything they can to thwart such an alliance; and Rosamond soon realises the extent of the danger, when a prominent official is murdered and then an attempt is made on both her and Lady Mary's lives. In her quest to protect her ward - and her estranged husband - Rosamond must put herself in mortal peril.

display_description Mistress Jaffrey is Rosamond Appleton, illegitimate daughter of Lady Appletons late, unlamented husband, Sir Robert. Now shes all grown up, married, and ready to solve crimes on her own. She was raised by Susanna Appleton, but she inherited some of the worst traits of both her parents. Estranged from [her husband], Rosamond is shocked to learn he may be in danger. To help keep him safe, she is willing to go undercover as an intelligence gatherer for the Crown. Why not, when both her father and her stepfather did their share of spying when they were young? But when another agent is murdered, Rosamond must add crime-solving to her other responsibilities. --author's website.
