A thrilling new tale of conspiracy, intrigue and rapier-sharp wit, starring the inimitable William Shakespeare.
All is not well in Venice. Threatened daily by papal assassins, William Shakespeare and his close friends, Oldcastle and Hemminges, are increasingly isolated - the lies that have protected them so far beginning to wear thin.
His companions want desperately to leave, but Will is tied to the city - his lover, the beautiful Isabella, is growing ever sicker. As tensions reach breaking point, their company is forced to split....
Once more full of swaggering charm, breathless action and rapier-sharp dialogue, this is the second in Benet Brandreth's highly acclaimed series reimagining the lost years of William Shakespeare.
