CARDINAL'S COURT

CORA HARRISON    Book Number: 86734    Product format: Paperback

Hampton Court 1522 and lawyer Hugh Mac Egan has arrived from Ireland to draw up the marriage contract between James Butler, son of his employer the Earl of Ormond, and Anne Boleyn. It is a dynastic alliance that will resolve an age-old inheritance dispute, but Anne it seems has other ideas. Her heart is set on Harry Percy, heir to the magnificent earldom of Northumberland, sparking rivalry between the two young men. When a member of Cardinal Wolsey's palace staff is found shot dead with an arrow, Percy is quick to give evidence that implicates Butler. And with Percy's testimony backed up by Butler's artful bride-to-be, things start to look bleak for the young Irishman. In Tudor England, the accused is guilty until proven innocent. Against the backdrop of the Lenten festivities, Mac Egan sets out to exonerate his patron's heir and find the real killer, and as he does so he reveals the many factions and intrigues that lie beneath the surface at the cardinal's court. Paperback, 317pp with author's note about what is true and untrue in this novel.
