really liked it

Giordano Bruno's third outing and each stronger than the last. S.J.Parris conjures up the atmosphere of Elizabethan England with some aplomb, the paranoia, the hopelessness of those with no power and the priviledge enjoyed by the few.

As for the characters, Bruno continues to develop with the series as we learn more about him and he has become a credible hero. There's an assortment of suspicious and suitably malevolent locals, and, as the plot develops, almost anyone could be up to no good. Parris has devised a plot that covers several bases, politics, religion, a bit of romance, revenge, they are all in there without overwhelming the reader.
