TOP 500 REVIEWERon February 26, 2007
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.
