Publisher's Summary

Fear haunts the streets of London after the assassination of a protestant Prince, and the recurrence of the plague.
Giordano Bruno suspects someone is following him, but on confronting his stalker, he realizes it is the woman he once loved – she is on the run, accused of murder.
Bruno travels to Canterbury to help clear her name, instructed by Sir Francis Walsingham to also search for the assassin in the shadow of England’s holiest shrine…


What the Critics Say

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

Canterbury Elizabethan Morse

This is the third book Parris' books with philosopher detective Giordano Bruno. There is a story arc in these books like in the Rebus and Bosch novels, where characters appear from other books along with some story strands. So whilst its not strictly necessary to read the books in order it does help improve the reader's enjoyment of they have read the previous books.

This book takes Bruno to Canterbury where he helps a friend discover who murdered her husband. Throw in Huguenot immigrants, small town plots, dead saints bones and a catholic threat to protestant England you've got a fast paced, well researched whodunit.!

Kennedys narration is as good as ever with lots of great voices to distinguish the large cat of characters. A very good listen. Treachery next!

More than a great who done it

I'm really enjoying this series of books and learning more about Bruno as the books go on. He's a great character. This book is a bit of a who done it but with great twists and turns that keep you guessing and discovering.

The narrator is good though his Queen Elizabeth could have been better :)
