The Protector

The Fall and Rise of Oliver Cromwell - A Novel

Tom Reilly


List Price: 13.95*
* Individual store prices may vary.


A distinctively realistic 'all killer - no filler' fictional biography that bristles with controversy, sex, love, civil war, slaughter, intrigue, redemption and - perhaps the ultimate crime of all - regicide. Every effort has been made to accurately weave real people around a narrative of historical precision. Meticulously biographical in its substance, the plot is predetermined by a landscape of true events that both enthral and educate. Perhaps controversially, the subject is credibly portrayed as a tender father, an admirable man and a reluctant overachiever. The unrelenting pace of the action truly reflects Cromwell's compelling life story. Think you know Oliver Cromwell? Think again.
