"In Uneasy Lies the Crown, the thrilling new mystery in Tasha Alexander's bestselling series, Lady Emily and her husband Colin must stop a serial killer whose sights may be set on the new king, Edward VII. On her deathbed, Queen Victoria asks to speak privately with trusted agent of the Crown Colin Hargreaves, slipping him a letter with her last, parting command: Une sanz pluis. Sapere aude. "One and no more. Dare to know." The year is 1901 and the death of Britain's longest-reigning monarch has sent all of the Empire into mourning. But for Lady Emily and her dashing husband Colin, the grieving is cut short as another royal death takes center stage. A body has been found in the Tower of London, posed to look like the murdered medieval king Henry VI. Soon after a second dead man turns up in London's exclusive Berkeley Square, his mutilated remains staged to evoke the violent demise of Edward II, it becomes evident that the individual behind the crimes plans to kill again and again. The race to find him takes Emily deep into the capital's underbelly, with its secret gangs, street children, and sleazy brothels. But the clues aren't adding up, and even more puzzling are the anonymous letters Colin has been receiving since Victoria's death. Is someone threatening her successor, Edward VII?"--… (més)

Agent of the Queen, Colin Hargreaves is given a mystery to solve by Queen Victoria when she is on her death bed. Meanwhile a body turns up in the Tower of London dressed as a murdered King Henry VI. Is there a connection between the two or is there a threat to the new King. Part of the book also details the life of William Hargreaves and his wife from 1415 which I didn't find particurly interesting.
This is my second attempt at reading a book from this series and I admit to not caring or especially liking any of the characters.

When bodies appear staged as assassinated kings, of course Colin is called in by the Crown to ensure the safety of the monarch during the transition following the death of Victoria. Also, in alternating chapters, we see the ancestor of Colin including the origination of his title. While I found the history interesting, I did find the alternations frustrating at certain points as it required shifting back and forth between what seemed more like 2 separate stories than an intertwined narrative.

Upon her death bed, Queen Victoria calls for Colin Hargreaves & hands him a cryptic message, which is the first "Clue" of a Royal scavenger hunt ....

While searching for clues he is called to the Tower to investigate a murder; the victim staged to look like murdered king Henry VI. Then a second murder is staged to resemble that of Edward II's violent death. Upon visiting the costume shop, it is learned that the murderer has purchased two more costumes with the plans of setting the next murders to reenact those of Richard II & King Harold.

As Colin & Lady Emily, with the help of Jeremy, follow the clues; they find that each cryptic note leads to another and they begin to think the murders have something to do with a planned assassination of the the new King Edward, however, the victims all are connected to the East End and a group of thugs called "The King's Boys", with no relation to King Edward.

The parallel story is that of Cecily, her husband William Hargrave, & King Henry IV's attack on France for the French Crown, which eventually ties into the "Clues".

My consternation in this book was the author's use of "Beefeater" when referring to the Yeomen Warders... Rather disconcerting to use a modern term as such..... ( )

Puzzles from dying Queen Victoria, a look backward at the time of Henry V and a current investigation into who is killing common folks and staging them as facsimiles of past royal deaths create a lively tale about Lady Emily and husband, Colin. Nice blend of history and crime solving which are the forte for this very good series. ( )

The Hargreaves and murder--always a heady mix!

Once again intrigue and history go hand in hand. Colin Hargreaves receives a deathbed command and a mysterious letter from dying queen Victoria. A series of brutally staged murders begin to appear posed as dead kings.
The puzzle seems to revolve around two stories separated by hundreds of years.
The only commonality is that of the posed Kings. The fear is that this is all a threatening guidepost targeting the new king, Edward VII. A teaser indeed!
The outcome is fittingly resolved with determined Lady Emily and the gorgeous Colin turning up trumps.
I do so enjoy this couple and their crime solving abilities.
