The Windsor Knot
Clever. SJ Bennett opens a new crime series featuring a familiar protagonist: Queen Elizabeth II. Under Bennett’s conceit, the Queen solves crimes in her spare time, and proves herself to be an unerring judge of character in the process. The setting for the crime in the novel titled, The Windsor Knot, is Windsor Castle, where an overnight guest has been found dead in one of the bedrooms. Thanks to a poorly tied knot, what appeared to be suicide looks now like foul play. The manner in which the Queen pursues her inquiries will delight those readers who love crime fiction, and the use of her assistant private secretary brings those two women closer together. I was entertained by this clever novel and look forward to the next case investigated by the Detective Queen. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Windsor Knot from amazon.com.
