Bacon's powerful uncle, Lord Burghley, suspects Catholic conspirators of the crime, but other motives quickly emerge. Rival barristers contend for the murdered man's legal honors and wealthy clients. Highly-placed courtiers are implicated as the investigation reaches from Whitehall to the London streets.
Bacon does the thinking; Clarady does the fencing. Everyone has something up his pinked and padded sleeve. Even the brilliant Francis Bacon is at a loss - and in danger - until he sees through the disguises of the season of Misrule.

I am not sure if it was the performance or how the characters were written, but I had a tough time with this book. Just didn't care if the murderer got all of them.

I was really impressed with this book and found the story very interesting. There is more than just a murder in the story. Before listening to this book, I had never paid much attention to the court system in England in the 1500's. I thought the author wrote great imagery with this book and I loved the unexpected twists and even the humor. Joel Froomkin did an excellent performance with the various characters. I was given a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I will definitely listen to more books by Anna Castle and Joel Froomkin!
