Albert Victor Christian Edward, Eddy to his friends, was in line to
the throne of England after his father who later becomes King Edward
VII. Eddy was an embarrassment to the family, drinking and
carousing, going from one scandal to another. He married a Catholic
commoner and was discovered in a gay brothel. The public and the
Royal Family believed he would never be fit to rule and all gave a
sigh of relief when he died in a fire.
Very few people realized
that it was all a ruse and Eddy was banished to Glamis Castle, deep
in the Scottish Highlands. He lived there for over a decade in a
luxurious if isolated suite and was known as Lord Osborne to all of
the servants. One night he disappears and his personal servant is
found murdered, her throat slit open. Lord Charles Sheridan is
ordered by the king to find out who murdered the servant and to
discover where Eddy went. He is able to accomplish his mission with
the help of his intelligent and nosy wife Kate.
reading DEATH AT GLAMIS CASTLE, readers will be glad that they are
not members of any fictionalized European Royal Family because they
come across as utterly ruthless and willing to do whatever needs to
be done to preserve their station in life. Robin Paige has written
an excellent mystery that involves German spies, a dark conspiracy,
and a servant who is loyal and devoted to a once crowned prince.
This work is rich in atmosphere and gives the audience a feel for
the period after Queen Victoria's death.
