It might seem absurd to suggest that modern capitalism could depend on someone like Nat Bramble, but Newman will have you believing it's the system's fault rather than his. It turns out to be quite a subtle book after all...

It's 1560. Elizabeth I is on the throne. England is in a golden age of trade and art; merchants and poets from across the world fill the streets. And there's a new commodity in high demand-oil. And Nat Bramble knows just where to find it.
