Day of Deliverance
Book two in the Jack Christie Adventure series
Hidden in Jack Christie's school is a powerful time machine. Most teachers belong to VIGIL - they believe the past should not be altered. However, a breakaway group of Revisionists plans to revolutionize history, enabling the Spanish to depose Queen Elizabeth I and Spain become a global power.
Jack and Angus travel back to 1587 to foil this plot. Joining the Fanshawe Players they witness the beheading of Mary, Queen of Scots, meet playwrights Marlowe and Shankespere and save Queen Elizabeth from an assassination attempt. They narrowly avoid 16th century water-boarding and even death.
This pacy, nail-biting read transforms Tudor history into a gripping adventure in which famous figures from the past are helped by two brave 21st century schoolboys.
