England, 1593: Five years on from the Armada and Elizabeth's kingdom seems secure. But there is always a plot afoot...

Robert Cecil, the Queen's spymaster, needs Nicholas Shelby - reluctant spy and maverick physician - to embark on an undercover mission once again. One that he can't refuse, if he wants to keep Bianca Merton safe.

Crossing the seas to Marrakesh in search of a missing informer, Nicholas hunts the dingy back alleys and dazzling palaces for the truth. But his search reveals a deadly conspiracy, one far more difficult to survive than he'd ever imagined.

And back in London the plague has returned, ravaging the streets and threatening everything he holds most dear...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The writing is of such a quality, the characters so engaging and the setting so persuasive that, only two books in, S.W. Perry's ingeniously plotted novels have become my favourite historical crime series.' - S. G. MacLean
