Colonel Brenden Winter was one of Queen Victoria’s most trusted agents of her elite Secret Intelligence Service. Now, he is wanted for her murder, which he did not commit. His only recourse is to fake his own death, so that he can destroy the faction that set him up and has toppled an empire. His new persona is that of an ordinary London doctor, Heywood Atkinson.

He has become both protector and executioner. His enemies fear him, while the people have renamed him. They call him, the Archangel
