I have started it at least three times and I cannot get further than fifty or so pages in The language is a horrible mish mash of periods and certainly not Elizabethan than in shreds and patches The characters are obnoxious The crudity is ridiculous the characterization of Elizabeth Tudor as being a lewd lesbian predator is particularly noxious and stupid In all it makes me wonder whether Jonathan Kellerman ghost writes his wife's DeckerLazarus series A good mystery could be written about conversos in Tudor England and I'd be glad to read it This book however is very definitely not it
