About the Book
An anonymous young man’s life is about to be changed, as could the course of history. It is 1536 and powerful men reveal to Peter Pentecost that it is he, and not the tyrannical Henry VIII, who should be on the throne of England. Can they persuade him to risk everything in a treasonable rebellion against the throne?
In the hands of the master thriller writer, John Buchan, the dark, dangerous days of Tudor England come alive as never before.
With an introduction by Robert Hutchinson.
This edition is authorised by the John Buchan Society.
