Publisher's Summary

In the final days of Henry VIII, one man is there to witness the demise of a legend...

Master historian Paul Doherty weaves his magic in an epic tale of murderous schemes and a blood-smattered political order. King Henry VIII, a fearsome figure of power and stature, lies upon his deathbed diminished by sickness and haunted by ghosts from his past. Only Will Somers, long-serving jester and confidant, sees all. While Henry is confined to his chamber, Will begins a journal that will document his King's last turbulent days. The country is fraught with tension. And with the King's son and heir just nine years old, there are many power-hungry councillors who will stop at nothing to better themselves.

Now as the King's health fails, rebellion threatens amidst widespread rumours of plots against him. With few allies remaining, will Henry himself become the final victim of his reckless, bloody reign?
