Publisher Description

From the bestselling, CWA Historical Dagger Award-nominated author of The Angel's Mark (2019) and The Serpent's Mark (2020)

The Elizabethan world is in flux. Radical new ideas are challenging the old. But the quest for knowledge can lead down dangerous paths...


London, 1594. The Queen's physician has been executed for treason, and conspiracy theories flood the streets. When Nicholas Shelby, unorthodox physician and unwilling associate of spymaster Robert Cecil, is accused of being part of the plot, he and his new wife Bianca must flee for their lives.

With agents of the Crown on their tail, they make for Padua, following the ancient pilgrimage route, the Via Francigena. But the pursuing English aren't the only threat Nicholas and Bianca face. Hella, a strange and fervently religious young woman, has joined them on their journey. When the trio finally reach relative safety, they become embroiled in a radical and dangerous scheme to shatter the old world's limits of knowledge. But Hella's dire predictions of an impending apocalypse, and the brutal murder of a friend of Bianca's forces them to wonder: who is this troublingly pious woman? And what does she want?

Col. Russel ,

Even the Stars and Planets can Threaten

The author’s research makes him a convincing and trustworthy guide to Europe which is both familiar and strange. This latest novel in the Jackdaw series is a slow burner and the menace almost undefined but at the same time real palpable. Personally although I enjoy visiting Italy I prefer the writer’s Bankside and will visit it again in his company any time. This is a great series and all the books are on my read again list.
