A gripping tale of murder set in the city of Liverpool. A serial killer is on the loose and the killers targets are members of the Liverpool police force.

Jacobean England in the early 1600s. James the first is on the throne and Catholics are hounded and persecuted across the land. Robert Cecil, the King's first minister is the person who leads the protestant drive to defeat the catholic religion in England.
On the horizon and plotting a spectacular defence of the catholic religion are the members of the "Gunpowder Plot" November 5th and all that. Robert Catesby, being the principal plotter along with Guy (Guido) Fawkes.
This book is so well written, full of intrigue and full of the desperation of the time. Treason ranks alongside the best books I have ever read. Jackson is a master story teller.
All England knows the story of the "Gunpowder Plot" via this book you have the chance to fully understand the detail. A must read title.
