Royal Whodunnits

Author : Mike Ashley, editor
Reviewer's Age: Grade 10

A collection of short stories based on actual historical deaths, this book focuses mostly on the kings and queens of England and France, but also includes Bohemia, Italy and Scotland. The collection includes well-known characters such as the Borgias, Mary Queen of Scots, Elizabeth I and Henry II, but also includes more obscure characters, such as King Wenceslaus of Bohemia (and Christmas carol fame)! Those with some historical knowledge will have fun seeing the historical figures come alive to plot, lust, hate, love and kill.
