My favorite place to visit Robert Carey and Sergeant Dodd is the West March near the Debatable Land. However this was an interesting although complicated mystery and outing.
Carey is asked by his aunt and cousin the Queen to revisit the mysterious murder of Amy Robsart Dudley 30 years after it occurred in 1560.Kidnapping, poisoning and gangs of robbers in the forest near to Oxford ensue. The gang of robbers who captures Henry Dodd, or as he calls them "broken men" have been infiltrated after 30 years by persons who have personal knowledge of the original events.
Lord Hunsdon, Lord Chamberlain and father to The Courtier, Sir Robert plays a fine part as does a new employee of his. Hughie Tyndale,a young Scot paid to kill him becomes a loyal servant and we shall surely see him again. Will Sir Robert meet up with his lady love in the next episode? Getting to be that time I think.
