Charles II's father was executed, his brother James managed to stay on the throne for only four years, yet Charles died in his bed having ruled for a quarter of a century. Although welcomed back as king in 1660, the honeymoon of the Restoration soon passed with plots and uprisings to follow. Dangerous Treasons describes the sinister and murky world of espionage, plots and treason in the Restoration period, with former intelligence officer and security adviser Julian Whitehead telling the darker side of the Merry Monarch's reign. Charles survived plots and rebellions with a mixture of guile, espionage, propaganda, covert operations and military oppression. Conspiracy and sedition are revealed in places as different as the glittering extravagance of the Court with its scheming mistresses and power hungry aristocrats to back street taverns frequented by rogues and rebels. Welcome to a world of spies, kidnap, assassination, censorship, false witness, and judicial murder. AUTHOR: Julian Whitehead read History at Oxford after which he spent a full career in government intelligence and his appointments have included Chief of Staff of the Intelligence Centre and Deputy Director of Defence Security. Since retiring from military intelligence he has been the Security Adviser to Historic Royal Palaces. His previous book was Cavalier and Roundhead Spies Intelligence in the Civil War and Commonwealth published by Pen and Sword in 2009.
