Boredom leads to desperate times! Jacob Bell and his partner, Roberto Rosso, were bored. Because of this, Lord Burghley, Chief Minister to Queen Elizabeth I, persuaded them to become Queen's Commissioners and investigate a murder at a foundry, making decorative ironwork. This apparently simple case, turns into an intriguing mystery, as they both narrowly escape attempts to kill them. The plot they uncover, threatens the life, not only of the Tudor Queen, Elizabeth, but her ministers as well. As the Queen's progress winds its way into East Anglia, staying at a new house nearly every night, the intrepid pair race to save them all from a fiendishly clever foe.
