Winner of the HW Fisher best first biography prize Spectator books of the year 2012 "Sunday Times", "Daily Telegraph", "Tls", "Financial Times", "Guardian", "Daily Mail" and "Sunday Telegraph Books of the Year 2011". "He were a dark prince, and infinitely suspicious, and his times full of secret conspiracies and troubles". (Sir Francis Bacon).

And at the book's heart is the tragic, magnetic figure of Henry VII - controlling, paranoid, avaricious, with a Machiavellian charm and will to power.
