Giveaway - The Devil's Chalice by Derek Wilson

From Monday 7th - November until Sunday 13th November 2016, Derek is offering the chance to win a copy of his new release, The Devil's Chalice:

The third book in the acclaimed series of Thomas Treviot Tudor crime thrillers - Based on REAL TUDOR CRIME RECORDS.

The Real Crime

In the steaming summer of 1549 two men languish in the Tower of London. William West is accused of attempted murder. Robert Allen is under investigation for dabbling in the Black Arts. Meanwhile, England is in the grip of rebellions against the boy king, Edward VI. The connections between these facts remains a mystery.

Our Story

London goldsmith, Thomas Treviot, is sent by his patron, Archbishop Cranmer, to discover discreetly what connections West has with leading figures at court. But Thomas has problems of his own: his teenage son has gone off to Norwich to join rebels led by Robert Kett. Trying to find his son and please Cranmer, he is plunged into dangers from peasant mobs, London gangsters and political chicanery, not to mention an enemy wielding occult power...

Once again, D.K. Wilson bases his story on documented facts in order to evoke the feverish atmosphere of 1549's 'summer of discontent' in which magic was as real to people as mob violence and political scheming.

  1. As an archivist I always say that fact is just as interesting as fiction, so to meld the two into a mystery is inspired, and I'd love to read this. 23lochalsh@gmail.com
