1635: A Parcel of Rogues by Eric Flint

An up-time Irishman is rescuing an Oliver Cromwell who hasn’t hurt Ireland yet. They run to Scotland, of all places, where another of the rescuers gets thrown in jail for misprision.  Meanwhile the Scottish clan chiefs are thinking really hard about Free  Scotland instead of United Kingdoms. Meanwhile, Ducos who shot the Pope in _The Galileo Affair_, is back to make trouble for the Catholics.  Over in London, dreary arguments with the king continue, and the Lord who is advising the king wonders if being the power behind the throne is worth the work.

Riots!  Private arguments! Eavesdropping on  your enemies! A crippled chief who still uses his br3in! Lots of fun.
