A Wild and Captivating Ride from Bestselling British Author James Forrester: A whale of a yarn...a winner for any reader who loves historical, action-packed novels. Kirkus Your Choice. Your Faith. Your Fate. 1564: Catholic herald William Harley, known as Clarenceux, guards a highly dangerous document. It's a manuscript he'd rather not have-destruction and death have followed in its wake. But things get much worse when the document is stolen, and he plunges into a nightmare of suspicion, deception, and conspiracy. As England teeters on the brink of a bloody conflict, Clarenceux knows the fate of the country and countless lives hang in the balance. The roots of betrayal are deep and shocking, and the herald's journey toward the truth entails not just the discovery of clues and signs, but also of himself. In this brilliant new Elizabethan conspiracy from the internationally acclaimed author of Sacred Treason, faith and fear stir up a powerful story of loyalty, lies, and secrets. No one can create a sense of historical space as convincingly as [Forrester] does.-The Daily Telegraph
