    The Plot Against Pepys PDF ´ The PlotePUB æ plot mobile, against pdf, pepys pdf, The Plot kindle, The Plot Against Pepys KindleSold as a spy story but a political intrigue and crime story Occurs later in Pepys life from his famous diaries really gets under the skin of the genuine Catholic vs Protestant fear of that timeReally well written excellent research I read it not long after a book on The Great Fire of a decade previous to this story and it's interesting to see how heroes can become villains and vice versa

    The Plot Against Pepys PDF ´ The PlotePUB æ plot mobile, against pdf, pepys pdf, The Plot kindle, The Plot Against Pepys KindleA comprehensive and extensively researched 36 pp of footnotes at the end presentation of the issues that led to Samuel Pepys's imprisonment in the Tower of London and the proceedings brought against him in Parliament for treason in 1679 Pepys whose rise in the Admiralty was aided by his association with the Duke of York the future James II fell victim to the paranoia sweeping through London and Parliament over the Duke's Catholicism and over imagined Popish Plots It was feared that if and when the Duke succeeded his brother Charles II Catholicism would replace the Church of England throughout the country and the earlier Protestant martyrdom that took place under Mary Tudor would return Pepys's association with the Duke brought out the anger of the newly empowered Whig members of the Commons in Parliament and landed Pepys in prison His brilliant fight against the trumped up charges and against tremendous odds in the less than impartial justice system

    The Plot Against Pepys PDF ´ The PlotePUB æ plot mobile, against pdf, pepys pdf, The Plot kindle, The Plot Against Pepys KindleJust goes to show you that swindling is one of the world's oldest professions I was less interested in Pepys' story which rather dragged as his ordeal did than in Scott's Arch swindler he seems the stereotypical compulsive liar he was probably unable to tell the truth even when he wished to which wasn't often apparently How he got away with it so long is probably a tribute to the poor communications of his time as much as to his ability He was notoriously bad at covering his tracks or doing than running away when the times got tough

    The Plot Against Pepys PDF ´ The PlotePUB æ plot mobile, against pdf, pepys pdf, The Plot kindle, The Plot Against Pepys KindleIt's OK Not my period really though Well researched for sure but somehow lacks the sparkle to make it really interesting to me Maybe the book assumes you know about the early Pepys than I do or have background knowledge It's not a bad book by any stretch of the imagination don't get me wrong but it's not got the bite that some of my favourite non fiction historical writers put into their work
