Cromwell is dead. He was an unpopular but still forceful leader, who yet managed to hold everything together while he lived, but now in the power vacuum created by his absence, no one can be sure of England’s future. Who will rule the country now, Parliament again, or will people listen to the rising national wish for the return of the monarchy?
Exiled in Europe, Charles II and his advisers have plotted fruitlessly for his return for ten long years, but now, just when things finally seem to be going their way, they realize that they have a new and utterly ruthless enemy to contend with, someone with a long-standing and deeply personal hatred of the House of Stuart and all that it stands for, someone who would do anything and commit any crime to achieve their ends.
This is the enemy that Christopher Gaunt, one of the royalist agents, is sent to deal with, a task far more dangerous and deadly than anyone could have imagined
