Summary

June 1554. Professional assassin Jack Blackjack has been dispatched to the palace of Woodstock, where Queen Mary's half sister, Princess Elizabeth, is being kept under close guard. Jack's employer has reason to believe that a spy has been installed within the princess' household, and Jack has been ordered to kill her. Jack has no choice but to agree. 

But he arrives at Woodstock to discover that a murder has already been committed. As he sets out to prove his innocence by uncovering the real killer, Jack finds the palace to be a place steeped in misery and deceit. But who among Woodstock's residents is hiding a deadly secret - and will Jack survive long enough to find out?

Is it just me or does the story stall out after the gates are closed?

I’ve read another series by this author and it was wonderful. I was really hopeful this series would be the same. This series (I’ve read books 1 and 2) just seems to drag on and on in the middle with no little happening that keeps you interested in the plot line. It feels like the author is more worried about filling a certain number of pages than keeping the plot moving at a pace that keeps the reader interested.
