ROBERT HUTCHINSON The Audacious Crimes of Colonel Blood The Spy Who Stole the Crown Jewels and Became the King’s Secret Agent

The gripping story of Colonel Thomas Blood: dangerous double agent and Irish rogue. Colonel Thomas Blood (1618–1680) is one of the most enigmatic and alluring figures in Britain’s history. Fervently and religiously nonconformist, Blood had been involved in many plots to assassinate King Charles II (1630–1685) and overthrow the Stuart government. In 1671 he daringly attempted to seize the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London. This is the compelling story of a man with ambiguous political and personal motivation, and an extraordinary account of the perils and conspiracies that surrounded the ‘Merry Monarch’. Robert Hutchinson is a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London and the bestselling author of The Last Days of Henry VIII, Elizabeth’s Spymaster, Thomas Cromwell, House of Treason, Young Henry and The Spanish Armada. He was appointed an OBE in the 2008 Honours List.
