Written by the renowned royal biographer, Robert Hardman, and with privileged access to the Royal Family and the Royal Household, a brilliant new portrait of the most famous woman in the world and her place in it. On today's world stage, one leader stands apart. Queen Elizabeth II has seen more of the planet and its people than any other head of state, and has engaged with them like no other monarch in British history. Since her coronation, she has visited over 130 countries across the ever-changing globe, acting as diplomat, stateswoman, pioneer and peace-broker. She has transformed her father’s old empire into the Commonwealth, her ‘family of nations’, and has come to know its leaders better than anyone. In 2018, they would gather in her own home to endorse her eldest son, the Prince of Wales, as her successor. With extensive access to the Queen’s family and staff, Hardman tells a true story full of drama, intrigue, exotic and even dangerous situations, heroes, rogues, pomp and glamour – and, at the centre of it all, the woman who has genuinely won the hearts of the world.

Anatomie vraždy Imogen Robertsonová

Na to, aká je kniha pomerne hrubá sa v nej do polovice takmer nič nedialo. Samotné vyšetrovanie často zabiehalo do nepodstatných rozhovorov, dlhé opisy nezaujímavého divadelného prostredia a osudov veľkého množstva vedľajších postáv ma stále odpútavali od hlavného príbehu. //bookverse
