In fear for his life, Bruno discovers that the young woman's murder could point to an even more sinister truth...

What the Critics Say

"Parris writes with confident ease of Tudor London... The dialogue balances nicely on a tightrope of period phrases and cut-to-the-chase colloquialisms. More, please." (Times)
"Impossible to resist ... Parris creates a convincing sense of the past, woven with so much intrigue that the head fairly spins" (Daily Telegraph)

Superb narration

I love this period of history, first finding it in the faction of Shardlake. I must say that Laurence Kennedy does an absolutely superb job of giving the characters in the book a real presence. Well done.

Getting better as a series

After a slow start in the first book, this story is a lot better and the characters seem to be hitting their stride, I was doubtful whether to continue, but glad I did, if you weren't overly impressed with book one, this is better
