Publisher Description

Thomas Clarady risks his life, his eternal soul — and his chastity!

Tom is recruited to spy on a group of radical Puritans at Cambridge University with Francis Bacon as his spymaster -- his tutor in tradecraft and politics. Their commission gets off to a deadly start when Tom finds his chief informant hanging from the roof beams. Now he has to catch a murderer as well as a seditioner. His first suspect is the volatile poet Christopher Marlowe, who keeps turning up in the middle of Tom's investigations.

Dogged by unreliable assistants, chased by lusty women, and harangued daily by the exacting Bacon, Tom risks his heart and soul to stop the villains and win his reward.

Castle Brings the 16th Century to Life

As it was in the novel, “Murder by Misrule” (by the same author), once again historical characters are mixed with fictional characters, for a truly engaging enterprise.

Thomas Clarady dominates this narrative and Trumpet plays a much more significant role. Bacon’s role, though still crucial, is somewhat minimized. Though fictional, this shines a new light for me on the conflict among the Puritan/Protestant, Church of England and Catholic Churches in 16th Century England.

I hope to read the rest of the series at some point.
