England has been torn apart by Civil War. Plots and intrigues
abound - but it is the struggle between two powerful spies which
will decide the eventual fate of a nation. It is 1648 and Britain
is at war with itself. The Royalists are defeated but Parliament is
in turmoil, its power weakened by internal discord. Royalism's last
hope is Sir Mortimer Shay, a ruthless veteran of decades of
intrigue who must rebuild a credible threat to Cromwell's rule,
whatever the cost. John Thurloe is a young official in Cromwell's
service. Confronted by the extent of the Royalists' secret
intelligence network, he will have to fight the true power reaching
into every corner of society: the Comptrollerate-General for
Scrutiny and Survey.
