9780571218264: The Queen's Agent: Francis Walsingham at the Court of Elizabeth I

Elizabeth I came to the throne at a time of insecurity and unrest. Rivals threatened her reign; England was a Protestant island, isolated in a sea of Catholic countries. Spain plotted an invasion, but Elizabeth's Secretary, Francis Walsingham, was prepared to do whatever it took to protect her. He ran a network of agents in England and Europe who provided him with information about invasions or assassination plots. He recruited likely young men and 'turned' others. He encouraged Elizabeth to make war against the Catholic Irish rebels, with extreme brutality and oversaw the execution of Mary Queen of Scots. "The Queen's Agent" is a story of secret agents, cryptic codes and ingenious plots, set in a turbulent period of England's history. It is also the story of a man devoted to his queen, sacrificing his every waking hour to save the threatened English state.

About the Author:

John Cooper studied and taught History at Oxford before moving to the University of York. His first book explored the power of propaganda in Tudor England, and he co-edited the catalogue of the 'Henry VIII: Dressed to Kill' exhibition at the Tower of London. He is currently working on the sixteenth-century Palace of Westminster. John enjoys giving public lectures on the Tudors and writing for the Times Literary Supplement. He lives in North Yorkshire with his wife, the author Suzanne Fagence Cooper, and their two daughters.

Review:

“As thrilling and suspenseful as any modern spy novel. It was a life that spanned one of the more turbulent periods in English history: the Tudor Era. This engaging narrative makes it clear how much England’s transformation had to do with Walsingham’s intelligence operations.” (Publishers Weekly)

“A superb new account of Walsingham and the Tudor age that paints a John le Carré-like world of double dealing and intrigue. The Queen’s Agent brilliantly recreates Elizabethan England in all its cloak-and-dagger intrigue and glory. George Smiley would have liked it.” (The Sunday Telegraph)
