Awesome debut novel from Michelle Diener! Set in the court of Henry VIII this nail-biting, page-turning suspense filled thriller is packed with assassination attempts, political plots and court intrigue. IN A TREACHEROUS COURT is an exciting blend of historical fiction, mystery, adventure, suspense and romance.
