My new novel Tidelands is set during the last years of the English Civil War. In this video, filmed at the London Library, I discuss the political upheaval during this period and leading up to the war. By the time of the novel, King Charles I has been defeated and is imprisoned on the Isle of Wight. But his jailers face a difficult question: what do they do with a captured king? Are they prepared to kill a king rather than risk him return to his throne?
Pre-order Tidelands at these links. It will be out very soon, on 20 August.
