The Queen’s Agent By John Cooper

After reading Pig Iron by Ben Myers I’m now reading The Queen’s Agent by John Cooper.

The Queen’s Agent By John Cooper

Story of Sir Francis Walsingham, courtier and spy chief. Don’t know alot about him other than through Geoffrey’s Rush’s portrayal of him in Kapur’s two Elizabeth films. Not read much about Elizabeth. Read much more about Henry VIII, his wives and various courtiers including Thomas Cromwell (after reading Hilary Mantel’s books about this period). Suddenly my longstanding vague interest in this period is showing itself as I work my way through the tons of books on this period.

Pig Iron was good by the way. Lead character John John Wisdom in particular. Check it out.
