Riassunto: The King's Chief Secretary wants Henry Gresham to investigate Sir Francis Bacon's private life. What Gresham uncovers is a conspiring clutch of Catholic lords and a trail of gunpowder underneath the Houses of Parliament.

Dal retro di copertina: Praise for Martin Stephen?s A Desperate Remedy

?Intrigue, highlife, and lowlife are brilliantly interwoven in a thriller that has a compelling vividness and pungency. The historical details are utterly convincing; one can see and smell Jacobean England and hear its inhabitants speaking. I do hope Sir Henry Gresham has a long life.? ---Lawrence James, author of Raj and The Rise and Fall of the British Empire

?Considerable effort has gone into the mucky detail of early seventeenth-century London, and the tale is moved on at high speed by Gresham?s well-timed revelations. Stephen has a good feel for the momentary decisions that can help to shape the course of history---as well, of course, as the cowardice, vainglory, and greed.? --- The Times [U.K.]

?A terrific book.? --- The Spectator [U.K.]
