About the Author

Charles Spencer was educated at Eton College and obtained his degree in Modern History at Magdalen College, Oxford. He was a reporter on NBC's Today show from 1986 until 1995, and is the author of six books, including the Sunday Times bestsellers `Blenheim: Battle for Europe' (shortlisted for History Book of the Year, National Book Awards) and `Killers of the King: The Men Who Dared to Execute Charles I'.


`Authoritative narrative history with the pace of a Jason Bourne film', Books of the Year, Evening Standard

`A truly thrilling tale which Spencer, a natural storyteller, delivers with erudition and wit ... an exhilarating read' Daily Telegraph

`A book of quite extraordinary period atmosphere, the most diligent research and an appropriately cracking pace' Sunday Express

`It's a wonderful tale, and Spencer tells it with journalistic flair' The Times

`Riveting...`To Catch a King' is as gripping as any thriller' Sunday Telegraph

`One of the joys of this just how close the reader gets to the action. The day-by-day account of the fugitive's doings provide delicious details. Charles Spencer is the perfect person to pass the story onto a new generation. His pacey, readable prose coasts elegantly through the great tale. `To Catch a King' is a cracking read and those who come to it knowing little of the famous tale will find they have a treat in store' Literary Review

`In this pacey slice of narrative history Charles Spencer...constructs this spare but atmospheric account of six weeks that changed the course of English history' Mail on Sunday
