Cora Harrison is the author of the acclaimed Burren Mysteries (Pan), as well as the historical thriller A Shameful Murder (Severn House, 2015). She has written numerous children's books, including the bestselling I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend (Macmillan, 2010).
An entirely captivating and readable historical mystery. Hugh Mac Egan finds himself in the middle of deviously twisted plot, attempting to solve the riddle of who killed one of Cardinal Wolsey’s men. Hugh is positive the murderer isn’t his patron's son, nearly everyone else is convinced it is. Chapter one sets the murder centre stage, the chase is on, and Hugh needs all of his wits about him. Cora Harrison describes the time and place so evocatively, the pages hum with intensity. Interesting facts are sprinkled through the story, yet it doesn't feel as though you are getting a history lesson. Names from the past, Cardinal Wolsey, Katherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, all become living breathing people, however the writing ensures Hugh remains the anchor within this fascinating set of characters. ‘The Cardinal’s Court’ allows you to walk into the past, and encourages your mind to unravel the intricate plot, what a fabulous start to a new series. ~ Liz Robinson Click here to read a Q&A with Cora Harrison on writing historical fiction.
