1793. As the Terror begins to cast a great shadow over France, Thomas Pryce, the new Vicar of Deal, crosses the Channel to find the missing parents of his beautiful French wife. Facing grave dangers, he makes his way to Brittany where he not only discovers the fate of his in-laws but also uncovers a plot which threatens to topple the British monarchy. Fighting against a sinister secret society in a race against time, Pryce battles to thwart the plans of a Parisian spymaster and his agents in London.

 THE FATE OF KINGS is the first in a series of gripping spy thrillers that will engross readers of C.J. Sansom, Dan Brown, as well as the many avid watchers of Poldark and Grantchester. In the first years of the British Secret Service, Thomas Pryce truly is the original James Bond.

The story grips readers from the opening scene and doesn’t let up as the characters fight the iron grip of the French Revolution. With attention to detail, the authors have painted the horrors of the Revolution, the mock trials of nobility, their resulting gruesome death at the guillotine, the determination of those who fought to prevent the revolution to spread beyond the French border. The authors added a bit of history that few readers know about; a newly formed British secret service. Move over 007. Another interesting twist is the warfare of a spiritual level; as both authors are former clergy, they add details that lend authenticity to it.

Due to the authors’ skill in describing scenes of torture and execution, this book is written for a mature audience.
