A golden world all turned to lead for a king who was once more golden than it all...

Join King Richard in his final days atop the rocky battlement of Castle Flint. All the realm has risen in rebellion against him, and there is little hope now of any salvation as the murderous armies of Henry Bolingbroke draw near.

But hidden in the sullen remnant of a royal king's court there is a deadly intent. When all the world has turned to death, can one man commit a crime so foul that none shall ever know of it?

Award-winning author Margaret Frazer visits the world of Shakespeare's Richard II. Come sit with her and hear the sad story of "The Death of Kings"...

About the Author

Margaret Frazer is the award-winning author of more than twenty historical murder mysteries and novels. She makes her home in Minneapolis, Minnesota, surrounded by her books, but she lives her life in the 1400s. In writing her Edgar-nominated Sister Frevisse (<em>The Novice's Tale</em>) and Player Joliffe (<em>A Play of Isaac</em>) novels she delves far inside medieval perceptions, seeking to look at medieval England more from its point of view than ours. "Because the pleasure of going thoroughly into otherwhen as well as otherwhere is one of the great pleasures in reading."
