Die letzte Frau Heinrichs VIII. – der große Roman über die Tudor-Zeit Heinrich VIII., der alte, sterbende König, hatte schon fünf Königinnen an seiner Seite. Als sechste Frau sucht er sich Catherine Parr aus – erst einunddreißig Jahre alt und schon zweifache Witwe. Er hätte keine bessere finden können, denn Catherine ist klug, auf Ausgleich bedacht und eine überaus patente Frau. Ihr Herz gehört aber Thomas Seymour, dem Bruder der dritten Ehefrau Heinrichs, und sie beginnt eine Affäre mit ihm. Aber nicht deswegen hängt ihr Leben an einem seidenen Faden – es tobt auch immer noch ein blutiger Religionskrieg. In diesem sehr genau recherchierten Roman ist eine moderne Frau zu entdecken, die bislang im Schatten ihrer Vorgängerinnen stand. In England wurde Elizabeth Fremantle dafür gefeiert, dass sie wie kaum eine andere die Tudor-Zeit wieder lebendig werden lässt.

Robert Stanley is enjoying all the benefits of wealth, little knowing he’s about to die. Stanley’s death behind the wheel of his blue Mercedes seems like an accident, but there is no denying many people wanted the man dead. As an executive, Stanley had been ruthless, gleefully driving competitors into bankruptcy and—it has rumored—suicide. He gained control of his company by turning the board of directors against his own father, an act that cemented his reputation as a merciless egomaniac.

Blamed for her death by his children, Stanley worked to isolate them from each other, leaving them only a small trust from their mother for expenses.
