In the Elizabethan Renaissance, men of power enact a militaristic takeover that will prompt a bitter struggle as a brave few struggle to stymie the hardliners and preserve world peace and stability.
Seeking to turn the clock back several centuries, a dedicated group of intellectuals and servicemen set out to restore English royal prerogatives and regain lost colonies and dominions by taking advantage of political unrest in a number of countries. Through intrigue, guile, patronage, flattery and inducements, they achieve some of their aims but emotional problems frustrates others and personal ambitions intrude fatally. The tense action is gripping, unpredictable and exciting.

About the Author
Peter Bailey was born in London, and his first venture beyond the capital was his wartime evacuation to a small North Devon village. Missing the London blitzes, he suffered the full horror of the V1 and V2 raids when he returned. After a fragmented state education, he enlisted in the Fleet Air Arm. From an early age, he wanted to write, but a lack of life experience proved to be a handicap. His early efforts at writing persuaded him to travel. He began writing Fortune’s Bastard on a Far East cruise before leaving the navy to qualify as a barrister.
