One Secret Will Be His Undoing.
1566: When religious tensions, political intrigue, and personal vendettas collide, nothing is sacred. Driven by revenge and zealotry, Catholic rebels kidnap the family of William Harley, Clarenceux King of arms and herald to her majesty.
In exchange for his wife and daughter's release, they demand the one document that has the potential to topple Queen Elizabeth and thrust England into civil war. The Final Sacrament test the bonds of Clarenceux's love and loyalty. Will he sacrifice queen and country to save those dearest to him, or will he let them die at the hands of his enemies for the good of the nation?
The final novel in Forrester's thrilling trilogy highlights the adventure and spiritual struggles of Elizabethan England and delivers a dramatic conclusion to the Clarenceux saga.
James Forrester is a historian by profession. He has published a few medieval and early modern non-fiction titles under the name Ian Mortimer (his full name being Ian James Forrester Mortimer). He lives in Devon with his wife and three children, on the northeast edge of Dartmoor.
The Clarenceux Trilogy was inspired by contemporary documents in the National Archives and the British Library discovered in the course of his scholarly research. The main character is William harley, Clarenceux King of Arms, a herald. It is concerned with loyalty and betrayal – and set in the 1560s, when loyalty to one's spouse, to the state, and to one's religion were exceedingly important – so much so that betrayal of these things could end respectively in flogging, being hanged, drawn and quartered; and being burnt at the stake.
