    Widely known as the queen of historical fiction - and a huge favourite with Book People customers (and staff!) - we're excited and delighted to bring you Philippa Gregory's latest bestseller, The Taming of the Queen, in beautiful hardback.

    The novel answers the question of just who was King Henry VIII's last wife, Kateryn Parr? Was she a faithful wife and scholarly queen, or a heretic and disloyal citizen before the Tudor court? Philippa Gregory has written about all of Henry VIII's queens in the past and this book offers an intimate portrayal of a 30-year-old widow who longed for both passion and power.

    Kateryn is given no choice when Henry VIII commands her to marry him. Having buried four wives, she knows the dangers that await but as Henry shows care and compassion for her, he begins to grow on her... But is this enough to keep her safe?

    Superbly plotted and often perceptive and funny, too, Griffiths constructs confounding mysteries that cleverly entwine ancient discoveries and very, very modern murders. An ideal set of books for fans of Alan Bradley and Kathy Reichs.

    This collection contains book 4-6 in Elly Griffiths' Ruth Galloway series.
