Summary, etc.: "The first book in a highly original and clever new crime series featuring Queen Elizabeth II as an amateur detective who solves crimes in secret and behind the scenes, in between her royal duties"--

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 February #2
    It seemed like a pleasant enough soiree at Windsor Castle, but the next morning a charming young Russian is found dead in his room there, seemingly from autoerotic asphyxiation. The queen's couriers are naturally reluctant to share the sordid details with Her Majesty, but little do they understand how unshockable and mystery-savvy their sovereign is. With the help of one of her secretaries, a part of her inner work circle, Queen Elizabeth II uses her long but subtle reach, powers of observation, and decades (and decades!) of sizing up people to solve several crimes. Set in 2016, as the queen's ninetieth birthday approaches, Bennett's mystery does a good job of presenting an Elizabeth that is somewhere between the genteel dowager familiar to generations and the feistier version seen on The Crown. Her Majesty's sleuthing partner is Rozie Oshodi, whose family is originally from Nigeria. Rozie's backstory and how she became a part of the queen's service juxtaposes well against the royal trappings. The first in a series, this sometimes tells more than it shows, but mystery readers—and royalists, of course—will enjoy their audience with QEII. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
