THE COMING OF THE KING
Queen Elizabeth I is dying, and the King of England’s oldest and bitterest enemy, Scotland, is poised to take the throne. With all her old allies and advisors dead, Elizabeth turns to the only man she can trust to tell her the truth, Henry Gresham. A reluctant recruit, Gresham finds himself unwillingly dragged into the vicious political manoeuvring that will decide who is England’s next ruler.
THE CONSCIENCE OF THE KING
Gentleman spy Henry Gresham is called to the deathbed of his archenemy, Robert Cecil, and given the task of retrieving letters that could be used against the King. Little does he realise that he is being set up, as live bait, to draw out a madman determined to destroy James I.
THE DESPERATE REMEDY
After the death of his best informer, gentleman spy Henry Gresham suspects foul play. Meanwhile he is summoned back to Court and ordered to investigate the private life of Sir Francis Bacon. During this investigation and the one into his informer's death, Grisham stumbles upon an unbelievable Catholic plot!
