Written by John Cooper. Abridged by Libby Spurrier.

Walsingham searches for proof that Mary Queen of Scots is guilty of treason against Queen Elizabeth I, and encourages the new wave of exploration to America and the New World.

The Queen's Agent is a story of secret agents, cryptic codes and ingenious plots, set in a turbulent period of England's history. It is also the story of a man devoted to his queen, sacrificing his every waking hour to save the threatened English state.
