A dangerous secret lies beneath Whitehall Palace…
Brother against brother. Father against son. Friends turned into enemies. No one in England wants a return to the bloody days of the Civil War.
But Oliver Cromwell’s son, Richard, has abandoned his exile and slipped back into England. The consequences could be catastrophic.
James Marwood, a traitor’s son turned government agent, is tasked with uncovering Cromwell’s motives.
But his assignment is complicated by his friend – the regicide’s daughter, Cat Lovett – who knew the Cromwells as a child, and who now seems to be hiding a secret of her own about the family.
Both Marwood and Cat know they are putting themselves in great danger. And when they find themselves on a top secret mission in the Palace of Whitehall, they realise they are risking their lives – and could even be sent to the block for treason.
We’re hoping to review this book in Historia soon. In the meantime, have a look at a review of Andrew’s earlier Marwood and Lovett book, The Fire Court.
And if you’re interested in the Cromwell family, another book comes out on the same day as Andrew’s; this time focusing on Richard’s sister, Frances.
