A Wonderfull Swim

This is a thoroughly engrossing swim through the English Channel with both Drake and the Armarda. You don't quite know what Henry Greham is up to until the last but, like Manion, you are ready to defend him which ever way that he turns. A great listen - it made me go and order the rest of Martin Stephen's books on Audible.

A tale of Elizabethan treachery and deceit

Henry Gresham is he an agent, double agent, triple agent, a traitor or an honourable man. Gresham and his manservant Manion step carefully and sometimes savagely through treacherous Elizabethan England and Europe. A gripping tale.
