Victorian London, 1895….Henrietta Jones is about to snap!
Wild and unmanageable, “Harry” runs away to buy a horseless carriage and a pair of red buttoned up boots. She instantly dislikes an arrogant American, and when she can’t intimidate him, she falls in love with his automobile, needles him, taunts him, flaunts her ice maiden look until he is driven mad, and then plots to straighten his nose.
The Queen of Xana is an adult fairy story, not for children, and a politial allegory favourable to the common people ahead of the fabulously wealthy. It also contains elements of magic and a few explicit sex scenes. It is the intent of the author that Queen Agatha’s radical political schemes and statements of moral conduct should produce much discussion and controversy among readers.
Justin Case, the most brilliant student Dridlington College has ever had, and the ‘Effective Detective’, gets shockingly and brutally suspended (from school, not a wooden beam or anything – so it’s not that bad) and the only way to clear his name is to find the real committers’ of the crime.
