has organized a lavish week of music, dancing, and fireworks.
Despite his attachment to the Queen and his driving ambition
to be her King, Leicester is unable to resist the seductive

But Lucy, who was raised by a spy in London, uncovers far

plotting to kill the queen. No longer able to tell friend
from foe, it is soon not only the queen who is in mortal
dangerâ€”but Lucy herselfâ€¦
