The Gunpowder Plot

Antonia Fraser
Authors:
Antonia Fraser

With a narrative that grips the reader like a detective story, Antonia Fraser brings the characters and events of the Gunpowder Plot to life. Dramatically recreating the conditions and motives that surrounded the fateful night of 5 November 1605, she unravels the tangled web of religion and politics that spawned the plot."Told with impressive scholarship and panache... The result is a narrative that is clear, balanced, and builds to its denouement with a sense of pace and tension worthy of a John le Carr novel" John Adamson, Sunday TelegraphRead by Robert Powell(p) 2003 Orion Publishing Group
