About the Author

Benjamin Woolley is an author and broadcaster whose work covers subjects ranging from the origins of virtual reality, to the Elizabethan philosopher, scientist and conjuror John Dee, and from the mathematician and computing pioneer (and daughter of Lord Byron) Ada Lovelace to the history of colonial America. His books have been translated into German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese, and his documentaries broadcast across the world. He lives in London.


*The Times*

It is an utterly gripping read, vivid with incidental detail and dark Jacobean politics, that offers a ringside seat for the spectacle of a powerful man, very publicly, sowing the seeds of his own demise . . . I devoured it.
*Elizabeth Fremantle, author of Queen’s Gambit and The Girl in the Glass Tower*
