When fugitive Italian monk Giordano Bruno—philosopher, magician, and heretical scientist—arrives in London, he’s only one step ahead of the Inquisition. An undercover mission for Queen Elizabeth I and her spymaster provides added protection. Officially, Bruno is to take part in a debate on the Copernican theory of the universe at Oxford University; unofficially, he is to find out whatever he can about a Catholic plot to overthrow the queen. But when his mission is dramatically thrown off course by a series of grisly deaths and the charms of a mysterious but beautiful young woman, he realizes that somewhere within Oxford’s private chambers lurks a brutal killer. . .

    " Enjoyable enough story but certainly not the best historical whodunit I have read. Some of the characterisation could have been better and the story a bit less muddled. An ok read though. "

    " This book is ridiculous but I mean that in the best way. Fun, if you go for this kind of thing. "

    " I found it a little hard to get into this book, but once I had fully committed to it, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was more interested in the depictions of life in Elizabethan times than in the murders. It was nice to remember some of the historical facts in this entertaining way. "

    " Excellent! Atmospheric, evokes the period beautifully. End is a bit contrived and anticlimactic but still a cracking good read! "
