Heresy. Conspiracy. Murder...

London, 1590: Amidst a tumultuous backdrop of Spanish plotters, Catholic heretics and foreign wars, Queen Elizabeth I's control over her kingdom is wavering.

And a killer is at work, preying on the weak and destitute of London...

Idealistic physician Nicholas Shelby becomes determined to end these terrible murders. Joined in his investigations by Bianca, a beautiful but mysterious tavern keeper, the pair find themselves caught in the middle of a sinister plot.

With the killer still at large, Bianca finds herself in terrible danger. Nicholas's choice seems impossible - to save Bianca, or save himself...

'Wonderful! Perry's Elizabethan London is so skilfully evoked, so real that one can almost smell it.' Giles Kristian

The angels mark

Just as gripping as DJ sans on books

Col. Russel ,

The Heart of the Matter

This is not just a good crime story but a convincing description of Elizabethan England where faith and cruelty marched hand in hand, something we still see today. Perry is one of many writers bringing to life Tudor and Stuart England and while he does not have the heft of Sansome his books are worth every minute of the time taken to read them.
