Stephen Alford taught for fifteen years at Cambridge University, where he was a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of History and a Fellow of King's College. He is now Professor of Early Modern British History in the University of Leeds.

The acclaimed and enthralling story of the dark side of Elizabethan rule.

Elizabeth I's reign is known as a golden age, yet to much of Europe she was a 'Jezebel' and heretic who had to be destroyed. The Watchers is a thrilling portrayal of the secret state that sought to protect the Queen; a shadow world of spies, code-breakers, agent provocateurs and confidence-men who would stop at nothing to defend the realm.
