The Blanket of the Dark Summary

The Blanket of the Dark: Authorised Edition by John Buchan

An anonymous young man's life is about to be changed, as could the course of history.

It is 1536 and powerful men reveal to Peter Pentecost that it is he, and not the tyrannical Henry VIII, who should beon the throne of England. Can they persuade him to risk everything in a treasonable rebellion against the throne?

In the hands of the master thriller writer, John Buchan, the dark, dangerous days of Tudor England come alive like never before.

The Blanket of the Dark Reviews

'Buchan knew that you can't buck the consequences of your actions, and that your life is what you make of it. Perhaps his peculiarly Scottish combination of Romanticism and Calvinism - daring living and high thinking - is due to return to fashion'

* The Independent Magazine *
