William of Orange may have triumphantly taken up the throne of England amid much jubilation and celebration, but there are still those who would rather he were not there at all. In this thrilling novel, Sabatini portrays all the political intrigue of seventeenth century London as these Jacobite extremists undertake their Assasination Plot, whilst presenting us with a worthy hero in Colonel Dudley Watson.

Rafael Sabatini was born to an English mother and Italian father, both well-known opera singers. At seventeen Sabatini moved to England, where, after a brief stint in the business world, he started to write. His major breakthrough came with Scaramouche, which became an international bestseller and was followed by the equally successful Captain Blood. All his earlier books were then rushed into reprint. Many of his novels were subsequently adapted into classic films which appealed to both a male and female market with their drama, romance and action, set against a variety of historical settings. 'One wonders if there is another storyteller so adroit at filling his pages with intrigue and counter-intrigue, with danger threaded with romance, with a background of lavish colour, of silks and velvets, of swords and jewels' - Daily Telegraph
