Yet he has many enemies, at home and abroad. London is a complex web of spies and merchants, priests and soldiers, exiles and assassins.

All that is kwn of him for certain is that he is utterly loyal to Cromwell, and that thing can be long hidden from him. In the city, coffee houses are springing up, fashionable places where men may meet to plot and gossip. Suddenly they are ringing with news of a murder. John Winter, hero of Cromwell's all-powerful army, is dead, and the lawyer, Elias Ellingworth, found standing over the bleeding body, clutching a knife. Yet despite the damning evidence, Seeker is t convinced of Ellingworth's guilt. He will stop at thing to bring the killer to justice: and Seeker kws better than any man where to search.
