The era of the Tudors was one of danger, intrigue, conspiracy,
and, above all, spies.
Summer 1553: A time of danger and deceit. Brendan Prescott, an
orphan, is reared in the household of the powerful Dudley family.
Brought to court, Prescott finds himself sent on an illicit mission
to the king's brilliant but enigmatic sister, Princess Elizabeth.
But Brendan is soon compelled to work as a double agent by
Elizabeth's protector, William Cecil, who promises in exchange to
help him unravel the secret of his own mysterious past.
A dark plot swirls around Elizabeth's quest to unravel the truth
about the ominous disappearance of her seriously ill brother, King
Edward VI. With only a bold stable boy and an audacious
lady-in-waiting at his side, Brendan plunges into a ruthless gambit
of half-truths, lies, and murder. Filled with the intrigue and
pageantry of Tudor England, The Tudor Secret is the first
book in The Elizabeth I Spymaster Chronicles.
