The Queen’s Agent

Knowledge is power, and Sir Francis Walsingham, England’s first great spymaster, understood that perfectly. At a time when England, a Protestant country, was surrounded by Catholics plotting to invade, and rival powers within, he did what it took to save Elizabeth I — and her embattled country. Historian John Cooper’s account of his efforts, and his life (c. 1532 to 1590), proves as thrilling as any spy novel.
