I think no matter how interesting the subject is, I will always enjoy history more when it's mingled with fiction. Most of the people beheaded in the book, I knew of. Some I did not. I think I will have to start reading more about the Stuarts. Some of the people on the day of their beheadings made light of it, I'm not sure I would be able to do that. I liked the quote from Katherine Howard - "I die a Queen, but I would rather die the wife of Culpeper" I would read more of Abbott's books.

An informative and readable, if necessarily somewhat ghoulish, tour around the history of British executions, by a former Yeoman Warder. Geoffrey Abbot has an engaging style, and slotted the various case histories into their historical context neatly and efficiently.
