England, 1553: Harsh winter encroaches upon the realm. Mary
Tudor has become queen to popular acclaim and her enemies
are imprisoned in the Tower. But when sheâ€™s betrothed to
Philip, Catholic prince of Spain, putting her Protestant
subjects in peril, rumors of a plot to depose her swirl
around the one person whom many consider to be Englandâ€™s
heir and only hopeâ€”the queenâ€™s half-sister, Princess
Haunted by his past, Brendan Prescott lives far from the
intrigues of court. But his time of refuge comes to an end
when his foe and mentor, the spymaster Cecil, brings him
disquieting news that sends him on a dangerous mission.
Elizabeth is held captive at court, the target of the
Spanish ambassador, who seeks her demise. Obliged to return
to the palace where he almost lost his life, Brendan finds
himself working as a double-agent for Queen Mary herself,
who orders Brendan to secure proof that will be his
cherished Elizabethâ€™s undoing.
Plunged into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with a
mysterious opponent who hides a terrifying secret, Brendan
races against time to retrieve a cache of the princessâ€™s
private letters, even as he begins to realize that in this
dark world of betrayal and deceit, where power is supreme
and sister can turn against sister, nothingâ€”and no oneâ€”is
what it seems.
