All the Men as Mad as He - Book 4
One of Barnes & Nobles' 20 Favorite Indie Books of 2018
"Why we loved it: Dripping with historical authenticity, Roberts crafts
an engaging, unpredictable mystery."
"A definite must-read for history buffs! Once again Neal Roberts has
given us a well-plotted story with the perfect balance of historical
figures and fictional ones. His collection of friends, foes and family
of Noah Ames are well defined and provide a solid glimpse into the daily
trials and tribulations of people at various stations in Elizabethan
England. The twists and turns of the story are well planned and provide
for a suspenseful read. While we can't know the innermost thoughts of
the real people who inhabit his work, it is evident that tireless
research was involved to ensure any assertions, thoughts or actions
are mostly accurate or could be so. When he does deviate from history
or if he extrapolates intention, you can find the explanation in the
Notes at the end of the book. I appreciate that level of detail. While
the broader story is meticulously researched actual events, the larger
story does remain focused on Noah Ames and his growing family which is
fortunate as he is a genuinely likable character."
LONDON 1600. Though Queen Elizabeth has ordered the Earl of Essex's release from confinement, she's thwarted his return to social and military grace by barring him from court for an indefinite term. Unsatisfied with this humiliation, the Queen considers whether to cut off his sole remaining income, as well. Noah Ames strongly advises against it on grounds that the Queen will thereby lose any remaining influence over Essex's conduct and also place him in desperate financial straits. When several seemingly unrelated men are found murdered, Noah begins to suspect that such murders reveal Essex's treasonous intention to return to court in bloody defiance of the Queen's order.

Meanwhile, Noah's beautiful daughter, Lady Jessica, has sought to remarry into the nobility, but events have thus far frustrated her plans. One day, Noah attends a briefing where the Queen's new commander displays maps of English military positions in Ireland. Noah's suspicions are aroused when he sees that one map is missing a watermark appearing on all the others. When he informs his young barrister friend Jonathan of his concern, he inadvertently sets in motion events that throw Jonathan and Lady Jessica together on a journey across England into ever greater peril.
