A former editor of Jane's Defence Weekly, a magazine reporting on military and corporate affairs, Clifford Beal has produced a riotous novel in Gideon's Angel. Set during the English Civil War and featuring demons, religion, magic, Freemasons, this historical adventure requires an old Cavalier to save the English throne from the Lord of Hell! Check out the blurb below...
It is 1653. Naive Royalists plot the downfall of Oliver Cromwell. But only one man knows the true enemy isn’t the Lord Protector – not when Satan is after the throne of England.
The English Civil War has ended with Cromwell now king in all but name. Many want him dead, including exiled royal officer, Richard Treadwell. But when the soldier-for-hire returns to England, he uncovers another plot to assassinate Cromwell that could bring a very different monarch to the throne – Satan himself! Treadwell must choose between avenging the family and fortune stolen from him and the future of his country – because in order to save England from the Devil, he is going to have to save Cromwell.
Not to mention convincing a certain musketeer by the name of d’Artagnan that he should help him rather than drag him back to his would-be masters in France.
