1558, and Europe is in revolt as religious hatred sweeps the continent. Elizabeth Tudor has ascended to the throne but she is not safe in this dangerous new world. There are many who would see her removed. Elizabeth determines to set up a new secret service: a group of resourceful spies and courageous agents entrusted to keep her safe and in power. As she searches for those who will make the difference, one man stands out. For Ned Willard the opportunity to serve his queen is God-sent. He will spend his life protecting his monarch from the tyrants who aim to destroy her or die trying.
