It's Venice, 1600. A dangerous place for free-thinkers and gamblers alike and Choradino da Mosto is both. Once the student of Giordano Bruno - newly tried and executed in Rome - Choradino is already being watched. When he is finally arrested he is offered a harsh choice: to remain in gaol or become a spy for the Republic. All eyes are on England, where an ageing Elizabeth has yet to name her successor. The Venetian authorities have intercepted coded messages from the Queen's magician, John Dee. They know Dee is chasing a mysterious manuscript - rumoured to have been brought back from Macedonia centuries before by Marco Polo. Choradino is charged with finding - and destroying - the heretical text before it falls into the hands of the Protestants. Choradino has no choice but to follow his orders. But as he joins a ship bound for Korcula, he discovers another cipher running beneath Dee's code. And the whisper of a secret which could strike at the very heart of the English court...
