In the tradition of Alison Weirís New York Times bestselling Mary, Queen of Scots and the Murder of Lord Darnley, comes the most sensational crime story of Tudor England.

On the morning of September 8, 1560, at the isolated manor of Cunmor place, the body of a young woman was found at the bottom of a staircase, her neck broken. But this was no ordinary death. Amy Robsart was the wife of Elizabeth Iís great favorite, Robert Dudley, the man who many believed she would marry, were he free. Immediately people suspected foul play and Elizabethís own reputation was in danger of serious damage. Many felt she might even lose her throne. An inquest was begun, witnesses called, and ultimately a verdict of death by accident was reached. But the mystery refused to die and cast a long shadow over Elizabethís reign.

Using recently discovered forensic evidence from the original investigation, Skidmore is able to put an end to centuries of speculation as to the true causes of Robsartís death. This is the story of a treacherous period in Elizabethís life: a tale of love, death, and tragedy, exploring the dramatic early life of Englandís Virgin Queen.

Chris Skidmore was born in Bristol, England in 1981. His first book was Edward VI: The Lost King of England. He is an Honorary Research Fellow at Bristol University, and is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. In 2010 he was elected as a British Member of Parliament.
