In the final days of Henry VIII, one man is there to witness the demise of a legend...
Master historian Paul Doherty weaves his magic in The Last of Days - an epic tale of murderous schemes and a blood-smattered political order. Perfect for fans of Susanna Gregory and C.J. Sansom.
The last days of Henry VIII's reign were taut with tension as the Council factions, ruthless and power-hungry, manoeuvred and fought. Not to mention the tension within the despot himself, his fears and phobias, the obsession he'd developed with the sexually-dominating Howard women. The Last of Days chronicles the fascinating disintegration of this King, the murderous schemes that encircled him, and the emergence of the ruthless, blood-smattered political order that followed his death.
