The Last Roundhead

Jemahl Evans

Do you think Britain is divided? It’s been worse… The Last Roundhead is a picaresque romp through the 1st English Civil War. “The research is impeccable and the writing full of verve.” Antonia Senior (The Times)

“The research is impeccable and the writing full of verve.” Antonia Senior, The Times

1642.

England has been plunged into a Civil War.

Blandford Candy is sent to London, after an illicit affair, and joins the Roundhead army to fight against the King, taking part in the Battle of Edgehill.

A reluctant hero if ever there was one, he becomes a spy for the cause – and, through luck or judgement, uncovers more than one Royalist plot. His love of wine and the fairer sex prove both a curse and a blessing for the agent.

Blandford soon earns the enmity of the King’s spy mistress Jane Whorwood, and patronage of the great parliamentarian leader John Hampden.

As well as navigating the politics and perils of the Civil War Blandford must also deal with members of his family, who turn out to be to be far more duplicitous and ruthless than any rival agent.

To survive, Blandford must choose a side.

The Last Roundhead is the first book in the acclaimed series of novels, charting the adventures of Sir Blandford Candy during the English Civil War.
