Philippa Gregory meets Mr. and Mrs. Smith in this witty and thrilling action-adventure novel of star-crossed assassins in Elizabethan England. Perfect for fans of My Lady Jane and The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue .
When Lady Katherine's father is killed for being an illegally practicing Catholic, she discovers treason wasn't the only secret he's been hiding: he was also involved in a murder plot against the reigning Queen Elizabeth I. With nothing left to lose, Katherine disguises herself as a boy and travels to London to fulfill her father's mission, and to take it one step further--kill the queen herself.
Katherine's opportunity comes in the form of William Shakespeare's newest play, which is to be performed in front of Her Majesty. But what she doesn't know is that the play is not just a play. It's a plot to root out insurrectionists and destroy the rebellion once and for all.
The mastermind behind this ruse is Toby Ellis, a young spy for the queen with secrets of his own. When Toby and Katherine are cast opposite each other as the play's leads, they find themselves inexplicably drawn to one another. But the closer they grow, the more precarious their positions become. And soon they learn that star-crossed love, mistaken identity, and betrayal are far more dangerous off the stage than on.

A bit of a let-down - I'd been waiting for this one, and while the story was entertaining enough, the protagonists just didn't feel realistic for the period, and certain issues (including sexual preferences) were treated much more lightly than is believable.

This book was very different from all the other books I’ve read. It’s more of a crime investigation than a mystery book. Lady Katherine's father was killed for being an illegally practicing Catholic, she discovers that he was also involved in a murder plot against the reigning Queen Elizabeth I. So Katherine disguises herself as a boy and travels to London to fulfill her father's mission, and she’ll do whatever it takes to kill the queen herself. I really recommend this book.:) Rating 3/5 stars
