This series of historical mysteries features the philosopher-statesman Francis Bacon as a sleuth and spymaster. Like his spiritual descendent Nero Wolfe, Francis prefers the comfort of his chambers, so he sends his assistant, privateer’s son Thomas Clarady, out to gather information. Tom loves the work. He meets all manner of interesting people, like Sir Walter Raleigh and Christopher Marlowe, not to mention the beauteous women who pop up wherever he goes.
