It is 1651. The English Civil War has officially been over for two years, but the country is still split by the conflict between the royalists, who want to see King Charles II on the throne, and the Roundheads, followers of Oliver Cromwell. The Roundheads' most feared adversary is a Royalist known to them only as The Moonraker (George Baker). His courage, skill with a sword, and quick wits have kept him at liberty despite all their best efforts. Cromwell has become increasingly perturbed by The Moonraker's activity and demands an all-out campaign to capture him. But the elusive Moonraker has other ideas...An unforgettable tale of adventure, swordplay, double agents and passionate romance in the best swashbuckling tradition.
