Description
In a Europe aflame with wars of religion and dynastic conflicts, Elizabeth I came to the throne of a realm encircled by the great Catholic powers of France and Spain. Headed by the brilliant and widely feared Sir Francis Walsingham, Elizabeth's secret service deployed spies, double agents, cryptography, and torture to defend itself against enemies both real and imagined. Using information obtained from 16th-century archives, Stephen Alford offers a vivid depiction of Elizabethan espionage, revealing the shadowy forces that made England's Golden Age possible.

"Alford is an expert on all things Elizabethan, and his intimate knowledge of the queen's ministers and the period’s political history guarantees the accuracy and thoroughness of this rip-roaring story…. Tracing the devious machinations of rebels and intelligence agents alike, Alford makes brilliant use of the intercepted letters, illegal publications and incendiary pamphlets found in the Elizabethan archives. A great spy novel—except that it's all true."—Kirkus Reviews
