Product description

Review

Praise for A Murder By Any Name
"Captivating...Fans of Fiona Buckley's Ursula Blanchard and Kathy Lynn Emerson's Rosamond Jaffrey will be delighted to add Wolfe to their reading lists."
--Booklist

"[A] promising series launch...Fans of Elizabethan historicals will be satisfied."
--Publishers Weekly

"An excellent series kickoff by Wolfe that cleverly highlights both the mystery and the many ills of Elizabethan times."
--Kirkus Reviews

"In vivid passages, Suzanne Wolfe's novel brings to the reader the light and dark of Elizabethan England, its squalor and splendor, filth and riches, intrigues and delights."
--NY Journal of Books

A fast-paced read that held my attention strongly throughout...Wolfe crafts a protagonist who is sympathetic as well as empathetic while retaining historical accuracy.
--Historical Novels Review

"A deeply atmospheric and richly textured Elizabethan mystery...I was captivated by Nicholas and Hector as they navigated court treachery and the dark recesses of the lower classes in this compelling Elizabethan mystery."
--Shelley Freydont, New York Times bestselling author

Wolfe's descriptions are unparalleled, immersing the reader in the time period as they join her wily protagonist on his quest to catch a cold-hearted killer."
--Anna Lee Huber, bestselling author of the Lady Darby mysteries

I stayed up reading much too late to finish this book! Wonderful Elizabethan atmosphere, well-drawn and unusual characters, action and intrigue and excitement--I felt like I was in the 1570s
--Amanda Carmack, award-winning author of the Elizabethan mysteries

"Bewitching! Suzanne Wolfe opens the door to Elizabethan life through her masterful creation of the sympathetic spy, Nicholas Holt. An exciting start to a promising new historical mystery series."
--Naomi Hirahara, Edgar Award-winning author of the Mas Arai series

"A classically plotted whodunit set against the background of Elizabethan London and the court of Queen Elizabeth the First, both of them well researched and vividly realized, with a wealth of detail. One can almost smell the reek of the 16th century streets and waterways."
--Fiona Buckley, author of the Ursula Blanchard Elizabethan mysteries
