Charles, 9th Earl Spencer – the bestselling author of Blenheim: Battle for Europe – tells the shocking stories and fascinating fates of the men responsible for the beheading of Charles I.

Killers of the King was published by Bloomsbury in the UK on 11th September 2014 and in the USA in January 2015.

‘Accomplished and gruesome, this masterful account of the fate of the regicides breaks all barriers in weaving the lives – and the grim fates – of many into a seamless, pacy and riveting read, underpinned by the depth of scholarship for which Charles Spencer is renowned. An exceptional and highly original history book that sheds new light on one of England’s bloodiest episodes.’ – Alison Weir.
