The Winding Stair is a brilliant historical novel set at a pivotal moment. Elizabeth I is dying, James VI waits to accede. But who will thrive, and who will fail under the new king? Will it be the scholar, Francis Bacon, whose brilliance is the envy of the court? Or his hated rival, Edward Coke, already acclaimed as the greatest lawyer of his generation? This is the gripping, beautifully crafted story of these two founders of the modern state and their bitter struggle. Written by Jesse Norman, an MP and government minister who understands something of what passes down corridors of power, then and now.
