• A fantastic tale of spies, deceit and murder in the Elizabethan age

    S. D. SYKES
  • Lawyer Christopher Radcliff is an erudite outsider with an unusual past, who turns state spy in this colourful and gripping historical novel.

  • Swanston clearly knows the period well and Radcliff is an engaging hero

    Antonia Senior, THE TIMES
  • Radcliff is a wonderful character, resourceful and intelligent . . . perfectly combines history and fiction . . . I loved every page

    Kate Atherton, FOR WINTER NIGHTS
  • Beautifully done. All the sights, sounds and smells of Elizabethan England are there, along with an intriguing range of characters . . . Radcliff is clearly destined to appear in future books, and I think he's likely to gain some loyal fans
