While on a visit to London, American genealogist Jefferson Tayte s old friend and colleague dies in his arms. Before long, Tayte and a truth-seeking historian, Professor Jean Summer, find themselves following a corpse-ridden trail that takes them to the Royal Society of London, circa 1708. What to make of the story of five men of science, colleagues of Isaac Newton and Christopher Wren, who were mysteriously hanged for high treason? As they edge closer to the truth, Tayte and the professor find that death is once again in season. A new killer, bent on restoring what he sees as the true, royal bloodline, is on the loose as is a Machiavellian heir-hunter who senses that the latest round of murder, kidnapping, and scandal represents an unmissable business opportunity. "The Last Queen of England" is a racing thriller with a heart-stopping conclusion. It follows on from "In the Blood" and "To the Grave" but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel."

I love this series. You can read it as a stand alone but if you follow the series the main character Jefferson Tayte becomes more real. Very fast past with many twists and turns and unexpected happenings. It also gives an interesting history lesson on the royal lineage. this is the only one so far that leaves a cliff hanger at the end.
