Something is brewing in the castle …

The Windsor Knott by SJ BennettIn Windsor knot, Queen Elizabeth is at Windsor Castle ahead of her 90th birthday celebrations. Preparations are interrupted when a guest, a young Russian pianist, is found dead in one of the rooms of the castle.

… His Royal Highness wonders: “Whodunit?” …

Suspecting a criminal act and unhappy with the investigation, the queen decides to quietly take matters into her own hands.

… Was it the butler? – If yes which?

As she carries out her royal duties with her usual aplomb, no one in the royal household, government or the public knows that the steadfast Elizabeth will use her keen eye, sharp wit, and steadfast courage to translate a murderer into justice in a mystery that will satisfy thriller lovers as well as fans of the royal family.
