They were specifically chosen as the team most likely to fail. Leaving Germany with an Enigma machine would, in fact, destroy the usefulness of the machine, as the Germans would know it was stolen and switch to a different code system. Archie volunteers to be captured with the machine to allow the mission to "fail". After he is captured, the team retrieves him and returns safely to England, leaving the Germans with the impression they have all the Enigma machines and the British are still desperate to obtain one. The film was panned by critics. The movie has an answer to it, but it comes so late in the film that although it makes sense technically, the damage has already been done.

I've always enjoyed Sharon Penman's historical novels but didn't know she had also written a series of historical mysteries set in the English court of Eleanor of Aquitaine. Her son, Richard the Lionheart is currently missing on crusade, feared dead and his brother John is plotting to declare him dead and take his crown. This first in the series is perhaps not as well crafted as her historical novels set in the same period, but is nonetheless a very enjoyable read if, like me, you enjoy cosy his I've always enjoyed Sharon Penman's historical novels but didn't know she had also written a series of historical mysteries set in the English court of Eleanor of Aquitaine.

Book Review: All the Queen's Men: The World of Elizabeth I (by Peter Brimacombe) : BH
Justin de Quincy has recently discovered he is the bastard son of the high ranking clergyman who had the 'goodness' to take him in and bring him up as an orphan. Fleeing to London he witnesses the murder of a wealthy jeweler who tells him before he dies that he is carrying an important secret letter from France to be delivered to Eleanor.
Concerned that the jeweler's letter may have important news, Justin braves the court to deliver it himself and finds himself recruited to investigate the murder and become embroiled in the politics and espionage of the court. I'm now looking forward to Justin's further adventures as the Queen's man. Their mother, Eleanor of Aquitaine, awaits news of Richard and soon employs the services of Justin de Quincy, after the murder of a goldsmith who was on his way to the Queen with important information about Richard.
This is the first of and Richard the Lionheart is feared dead, leaving an opportunity for his brother John to claim the throne of England. This is the first of four books in the Justin de Quincy series and my first introduction to Sharon Kay Penman. I understand that for a Penman novel this series is light on the historical detail compared to her normal novels. I really enjoyed it as a good entertaining mystery, a fast read with excellent character development.
There was a varied mix of very likeable characters and very unlikeable villains and I quickly found myself rooting for my favourites. I would have liked a little more historical detail included but I guess I need to look to her other works for that. Overall, an enjoyable read and I look forward to continuing with the rest of the series in the future. Dec 05, Leila rated it it was amazing. Justin finds himself involved in a Medieval Murder mystery.
I found this a most readable novel and of excellent quality.
persutheran.tk There is a very good twist at the end too which I didn't see coming. The historical background is impeccable as always in Sharon Penman's books. Eminently readable and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
