Praise

“Reinforces Parris’s position at the top of the Elizabethan historical pack. . . . Parris . . . masterfully mixes political intrigue, action, and sleuthing.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) 
 
“Giordano Bruno turns out to be that rare hero, charismatic and nuanced.” —Matthew Pearl, author of The Dante Club  

“A feast for fans of historical thrillers. . . . [Bruno] is one of the most engaging characters ever created.” —Bookreporter
 

“Move over C. J. Sansom, S.J. Parris has arrived. . . . Brilliant.” —The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

“Bruno commands our attention and our sympathy as any likable heretic should.” —The Washington Post Book World

“The novel’s fast pace and numerous twists keep readers hooked until the end.” —Booklist

“The politics of Elizabethan England play a part, but it’s the personal relationships that are front and center.  A good read.” —The Free Lance-Star (Fredericksburg, VA)

“Parris provides a sumptuously rich setting with an absorbing entangled plotline that will keep the reader on a precipice of sudden death.” —Historical Novels Review
