Publisher's Summary

September 1613. In Belvoir Castle, the heir of one of England's great noble families falls suddenly and dangerously ill. Within a few short weeks he will suffer an excruciating death. Soon the whole family will be stricken with the same terrifying symptoms. The second son, the last male of the line, will not survive. It is said witches are to blame. And so the Earl of Rutland's sons will not be the last to die.

    "Interesting story, distracting narration"

    Was really looking forward to hearing this as have come across the story in various Stuart history books and fancied listening to something a bit macabre in the run-up to Hallowe'en, not disappointed by the book itself but the narration has driven me a bit mad - Maggie Mash has a lovely voice but for some reason every single historical quote (and they happen very often as you would expect) is delivered in a strange croaky stage voice - often in regional accents - which I found deeply distracting and a bit ridiculous at times. Others may not find it an issue and it's quite possible I'm being fussy but I really did find the delivery distracting me from the words themselves which is a real shame.

    Story
    "Fascinating and beautifully rendered"

    A riveting book mellifluously read by Maggie Marsh. A chilling indictment of the position of the vulnerable in the early 17th century and an intriguing insight into court and dynastic politics in the Jacobean court.
