Abstract:

Lisbon, 1588. The great Spanish Armada prepares to set sail for England. Along the coast of the Low Countries, the army of the Duke of Parma readies itself for embarkation. But behind the naval and military build-up lies an even darker game: one of espionage and murder, of treachery and deceit. This is the realm of the spy - and at its heart is the legendary Elizabethan spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham. One by one his intelligence sources vanish; day by day the danger to his queen and country grows. Finally, he sends the young soldier Christian Hardy to uncover the truth. But first, Hardy must confront the Spanish Inquisition, traitors among his own and the might of the enemy. And time is running out.
