When Elizabeth I ascends to the throne, her advisor William Cecil warns her that she must marry a strong prince to keep control of her country, but she prefers her childhood friend, Sir Robert Dudley, the Earl of Leicester. His family history, including his father's execution for treason, and the fact that he is already married to Amy Robsart, stand in the way of their marriage. Gregory presents a possible solution to a mysterious death that has intrigued historians for centuries.
