6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Marshall Lord TOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 Feb. 2007
Format: Paperback
This is the second novel about Henry Morane, and the sequel to "The Killing of Richard III: Wars of the Roses I." There is a third book in the series, "The Traitors of Bosworth: Wars of the Roses III."

The hero, Henry Morane, was a spy working for Richard III until the death of that King at the battle of Bosworth. The new King, Henry VII, saves Morane from execution at the hands of Sir William Stanley, and employs him to work for the new regime, in the hope that someone who was loyal to one king might be loyal to the next.

The book contains a lot of historical details, some of it true, some of it speculation, most of it entertainingly described. It describes a period characterised by plots, counter-plots, treason and bloodshed, and a period more enjoyable to read about than it would have been to live through.

The presentation of Morane as a Yorkist turned Tudor James Bond is a little anachronistic, but the book is certainly fun. Just don't take it too seriously.

henry morane - a secretary at the court of the new tudor king - henry vll, is off on his latest adventures. this is a follow up to his very enjoyable "the killing of Richard lll". Together with his mistress, and his friend a yorkist like himself but now also working for the new king, he sets of not just doing spying work for his new master, but intent on seeing that the three men who watched his king Richard die on the battlefield get their just desserts. one is the duke of Northumberland, and the other two are the Stanley brothers, Thomas now a lord and married to the new kings mother,and his brother William. Great book, with a lot of interesting characters and facts that begin to bring the new tudor world into a new light, medieval days were over, but of one thing Henry Morane was sure of and that was all three would pay for their treasonable acts on the field of battle, when all three and their armies had agreed to fight for Richard and all three had let him down - Thomas Stanley`s men even riding into the battle and slaying Richard.
