Book Review & Giveaway- The Traitor’s Mark by D.K Wilson

I read The Traitor’s Mark by D.K. Wilson last year and recently came across another copy so I am offering it up in a little giveaway. It’s a great historical mystery novel set in Tudor England and based on a real unsolved Tudor Mystery.
The Traitor's Mark by D.K Wilson

Book Description:

The Real Crime: Hans Holbein, King Henry VIII’s portrait painter, died in the autumn of 1543. A century later a chronicler reported that the artist had succumbed to plague, yet there is no contemporary evidence to support this. Suspicions have been raised over the centuries, but the truth behind what actually happened remains a mystery.

Our Story: Young London goldsmith Thomas Treviot is awaiting a design for a very important jewelry commission from Hans Holbein. When the design fails to turn up, Thomas sends a servant to track Holbein down, only to discover that the painter has disappeared. 
In his hunt for Holbein and the lost design, Thomas is led into a morass of dangerous political intrigue, Spanish spies and courtiers that is more treacherous than he could ever have anticipated . . . 

My Review:
A really fantastic read, good characters, with a great setting. I love any books set in the Tudor period. The Traitor’s Mark is well written, describing how people used to live during those times. I love the fact that there is an element of real life to the book it gives it that special feeling. There is a perfect sense of mystery in the air while reading it. 
I didn’t feel as if I was missing anything with not reading the first book in the series, this could have easily been a standalone novel. Its an intriguing read for people with a love of history and mystery.
I gave The Traitor’s Mark by D.K Wilson 4 out of 5 stars
