Christopher Uptake


“Chris, you’re guilty! You’re an atheist!”


In the 16th Century your faith, or lack of it, could get you killed…Christopher Uptake, too outspoken for his own good, is easy prey.


When his talent attracts the patronage of wealthy Edmund Brentwood, he thinks himself lucky but it proves to be his undoing. Brentwood, a secret Catholic, is involved in dangerous Tudor politics.


Enter a ruthless spy-master, who hunts down and destroys Catholics, and who threatens Chris with arrest, torture and execution as a heretic, unless he spies on his friend.


Chris tries to warn Brentwood, but learns that his patron is also a dangerous man.


Caught up in these plots, can Chris escape with his life?
