England is a Judas nest of conspiracyIt is 1582, and the conflict between Protestant and Catholic threatens to tear the country in two. While Queen Elizabeth I holds the reins of power, there are those whose loyalty lies with her imprisoned cousin, Mary Queen of Scots. On his first major mission for Sir Francis Walsingham, the young John Shakespeare is ordered to discover a conspiracy to free the Stuart queen from Sheffield Castle.
All too soon, he realises that the tentacles of the plot reach deep into his native Warwickshire and threaten his own friends and family. His duty lies with Elizabeth - but how far will he go to protect those he loves?

Beware - order of books wrongly numbered.
Why has the order of the books in this series been wrongly numbered? I read books 1 to 5 and thoroughly enjoyed them but books 6 and 7 are the beginning of the story when John Shakespeare was first employed as an Intelligencer by Francis Walsingham and was still unmarried. It is impossible to enjoy reading books 6 and 7 out of sequence. Please rectify this mistake for the sake of other listeners, sadly it is too late for me now.

Disappointing and unbelievable
Found the characters overblown, the story confusing, and this writer has obviously never travelled from Stratford to Sheffield. If he had, he would realise you couldn't get there in one day on a horse. Come on! It'd take about two weeks, as Sheffield is situated in seriously rough country. Crossing Snake Pass is a hard road even in a car. Coming up the east coast would take ages. Research next time? Sheffield's a great place to visit!
