1660. Colonel Edward Whalley and his son-in-law, Colonel William Goffe, cross the Atlantic. Having been found guilty of high treason for the murder of Charles I, they are wanted and on the run. A reward hangs over their heads - for their capture, dead or alive.

In London, Richard Nayler, secretary of the regicide committee of the Privy Council, is tasked with tracking down the fugitives. He'll stop at nothing until the two men are brought to justice.

Act of Oblivion is an epic journey across continents, and a chase like no other.
