Description

Buchan skilfully weaves the story of young clerk Peter Pentecost, who has a claim to the throne, and a tale of intrigue against King Henry VIII, where 'under the blanket of the dark all men are alike and all are nameless'.

Buchan's description of the ruthless king is compelling.

His knowledge of the time of Henry's reign and his love of the Oxfordshire countryside are apparent.
