Although they never formally declared war against each other, England and Spain were in conflict for more than half of the forty-something years that Elizabeth the First sat uneasily on the English throne and Philip the Second menacingly wielded the Spanish sceptre. For twenty of those years, from 1585 to 1605, the most English of Englishmen was employed by Spain as a Roman Catholic counter intelligence operative. The Corisco Conspiracy is his first-hand account of the events which led up to the Gunpowder Plot (of which he was one of the ringleaders).
