Description

But the Queen's woes don't end there, as she has just noticed that a painting that once hung outside her bedroom is now no longer there.

Rozie voert het onderzoek uit, maakt zichzelf niet overal even populair en begint misschien ook gevaar te lopen, de Queen stuurt haar achter de schermen aan, voert discrete gesprekken en ziet mogelijke verbanden. After a short while being safe, they decided to treat themselves to a tourist-style walk in a nearby town. Ultimately though, the Queen's men "solve" the case and proudly present Her Majesty with a report while the Queen and Rozie keep their secrets. But when Rozie receives a threatening anonymous letter, Elizabeth knows dark forces are at work - and far too close to home.Bennett's depiction of the warm, wise, and witty queen and the insights into her royal life are fascinating. Although sometimes the"bad guys" POVs gave away some of the mystery and felt unnecessary, I liked the Black Ops setting and all the undercover stuff.

In the wake of the Brexit referendum that has divided a country and the US election between Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump, the Queen just wants some peace and quiet.

Me gustó mucho el primer libro de esta serie, bien escrita y con el punto original de poner a la reina Isabel II como investigadora en una trama policial. The Queen is disconcerted to spot one of her favourite paintings - and one that belongs to her - at an exhibition of maritime art in Portsmouth. But, unknown to her is that Tucker (who is really CIA field operative John Medina) has kept his eye on her from a distance, making sure she's okay because he wants her for himself. But this mystery didn't exactly work for me so I might not rush out to get my hands on the Queen's next mystery as fast as I would have. Once again there is a large secondary cast of very dispensable and forgettable characters who make fleeting appearances and don’t make much of an impression.

This is a fun and engaging listen, I really appreciated how the Queen's character continues to be fleshed out, although there were occasions when I felt that perhaps the narrative was at times more complicated than it needed to be. I felt sympathy for the Queen and liked the often whimsical reflections that Bennett has us being party to. When Niema sees Tucker for the first time in 5 years, Tucker introduces himself with his 'real' name, his identity that only a select few have knowledge of which now includes her. Our super-sleuth Queen unites sharp intuition and first-class memory with a lifetime of observation to outwit the police and MI5.SJ Bennett is the bestselling author of the international Her Majesty the Queen Investigates series, featuring Queen Elizabeth II as a secret solver of mysteries.

I found this story to have a long build up, I did like the characters but at times I felt like saying to them O do get on with it. Prior to Portsmouth, Her Majesty had last seen the painting decades ago, hanging outside her bedroom door, and she has no idea how or when it left her possession. When a body is found in the Palace swimming pool, she finds herself once again in the middle of an investigation which has more twists and turns than she could ever have suspected. It's was so easy to get lost in this wonderful world of spies, espionage, intrigue, and of course a kick-ass romance! I was taken with The Windsor Knot earlier this year and put a hold on this second book quite soon after finishing it.It is the 3 male advisors and a police officer who are drip fed the relevant information to make it appear as if it is they who solve the crimes, and we learn at the end just why that painting was so important to the Queen and Rozie inherits a painting that makes her joyously happy if slightly guilty. Unknown to most people, Queen Elizabeth is an amateur sleuth who's been solving mysteries since her father was on the throne.
