'[Hutchinson] writes with vigour and enthusiasm. there are some splendid set-pieces (the account of Flodden, for instance, is riveting)' BBC HISTORY MAGAZINE 'a gruesome story, of pride, greed and flaunting arrogance, blood and cruelty, cunning and stupidity... [Robert Hutchinson] has created a delightful and instructive book.' -- Paul Johnson LITERARY REVIEW 'all the while [Hutchinson] entertains us with fascinating close-ups of outlandish Tudor behaviour.' -- Peter Lewis DAILY MAIL 'the narrative is compelling and horrible... It is a riveting story, splendidly told.' -- Alan Massie THE DAILY TELELGRAPH 'Hutchinson grips every page with this outstanding story of treason in fearful times laden with espionage and betrayal.' OXFORD TIMES 'Hutchinson is a lively biographer and brings the period vividly to life. One has a keen sense of its sights and smells as well as the less immediate stink of fear, betrayal and unbearable pain... This book gives a balanced... view of the choices and compromises, the moral subtleties and the physical horrors of the age.' THE TABLET 'Robert Hutchinson gives a thoughtful sideways view onto 16th century court politics in House of Treason... a fascinating account of the Howard dynasty' -- Dominic Sandbrook DAILY TELEGRAPH 'Books of the Year'
