THE KING'S ASSASSIN The Secret Plot to Murder King James I

by | Read by David Timson

History • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Soft-spoken David Timson narrates this sweeping history of the court of King James I, Britain's first Stuart king. Listeners learn about the machinations and intrigue within the court. Attention is focused particularly on George Villiers, who rose from obscurity to become gentleman of the royal bedchamber and lover of King James I in 1615. Upon James's death in 1625, Villiers was accused of using poison on the king, bringing about his death. Timson's emotionally demonstrative tones echo throughout this complex study of Villiers and the British court, adding suspense to every turn and clue in the investigation. He shifts the pace and tone of his fluid narration to highlight the minimal dialogue and sweeping parliamentary pronouncements. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2019]
