About the Book

The 2015 Chaucer Awards First In Category for the Elizabethan/Tudor period.

“A delight for historical mystery fans.”
— D. Donovan, Midwest Book Reviews

Thomas Clarady is recruited to spy on a group of radical Puritans at Cambridge University. Francis Bacon is his spymaster; his tutor in both tradecraft and religious politics. Their commission gets off to a deadly start when Tom finds his chief informant hanging from the roof beams. Now he must catch a murderer as well as a seditioner. His first suspect is volatile poet Christopher Marlowe, who keeps turning up in the wrong places.

Dogged by unreliable assistants, chased by three lusty women, and harangued daily by the exacting Bacon, Tom risks his very soul to catch the villains and win his reward.

Reviews

“This highly entertaining opus is a gorgeous piece of historical mystery. Accurate historical details, page turning plot, bodacious, lovable and believable characters, gorgeous depictions and bewitching use of language will transfer you through time and space back to Elizabethan England and does not bring you back before you read  ……. ‘I am ready to serve, my lord, as always.’”
