More About The Queen's Agent by John Cooper
 
 
 
Overview

Elizabeth I came to the throne at a time of insecurity and unrest. Rivals threatened her reign; England was a Protestant island, isolated in a sea of Catholic countries. Spain plotted an invasion, but Elizabeth's Secretary, Sir Francis Walsingham, was prepared to do whatever it took to protect his queen and country. He ran a network of agents across England and Europe who provided him with information about invasions or assassination plots. He encouraged Elizabeth to make war against the Catholic Irish rebels and oversaw the execution of Mary Queen of Scots.

The Queen's Agent is a story of secret agents, cryptic codes, and ingenious plots, set in a turbulent period of England's history. It is also the story of a man devoted to his queen, sacrificing his every waking hour to save the threatened English state.
