The Locksmiths Daughter by Karen Brooks is a detailed historical novel about Queen Elizabeth's spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham. It brings to light the historical events of the times of the Protestant zeal to counter Catholicism, and sanctioned the use of torture against Catholic priests and suspected conspirators such as Edmund Campion. Who was incidentally hanged, drawn and quartered at Tyburn in 1581. Karen Brooks does an amazing job of bringing to life these turbulent times in history through her writing style, strong characters and detailed research into such a time of intrigue and political maneuvering.
