With a narrative that grips the reader like a detective story, Antonia Fraser brings to life the characters and events of the Gunpowder Plot. Dramatically recreating the conditions and motives that surrounded the fateful night of 5 November 1605, she unravels the tangled web of religion and politics that spawned the plot.
'Told with impressive scholarship and panache ...The result is a narrative that is clear, balanced, and builds to its denoument with a sense of pace and tension worthy of a John le Carre novel'— Sunday Telegraph
