Thirteen years after the Great Plague of 1665 - and eighteen years after the restoration of the monarchy under Charles II - England was swept by a new pestilence. It was a time of plots and counter-plots, of papist scares and republican conspiracy.
The murder of Sir Edmund Godfrey - 'the best JP in England' -further inflamed anti-Catholic feelings, already dangerously aroused by Titus Oates's so-called 'Popish Plot'.
The killing of Justice Godfrey has continued to fascinate and baffle historians ever since. Now Stephen Knight has unearthed new evidence which points to an ingenious solution. He shows that the men executed for the crime were merely scapegoats, that Godfrey wasn't all that he seemed, and that - far from the Catholics being guilty - a very different group of 'honourable friends' had excellent reasons for killing him. The book is a historical suspense thriller - with the difference that it is fact.
