Book report #22: Stephen Budiansky, Her Majesty's Spymaster

Bit of a hagiography of Mr. Secretary Sir Francis Walsingham, but that's okay, as I rather am fond of the old bastard. He's also rather nice to Robin Poley, which is a little hard to take, and even more impressively, Budiansky has managed to construct something like a narrative out of English history, 1570-1590. Which I don't believe for a minute, but it's nice to see it done....
