Discussing Tidelands: Political Upheaval at The London Library

8th August 2019

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.
