The entrapment of Mary Queen of Scots by Elizabeth under the care and great expense of the Earl of Shrewsbury - George Talbot - and has new wife Bess of Hardwick at Tutbury Castle. The book dragged on with themes of failed plots and escape in the context of a Queen the enchantress who stole hearts but wasn't true to honour and support shown to her. Portrayed Bess of Hardwick and Cecil (Elizabeth's spy-master) in the light of self-made people in it for money and estate.
