SacrilegeBook - 2012
Summer, 1584: Fear grips the streets of London as rumours of a plague ship docked on the Thames sweep through the city. The Protestant Prince William of Orange has just been assassinated by a fanatical Catholic and there are whispers Queen Elizabeth will be next. Meanwhile in Canterbury, a prominent magistrate with links to the shady Cathedral Foundation has been murdered. Sir Francis Walsingham, spymaster to the Queen, has long suspected an undercurrent of Catholic resistance in the city that was once England's greatest centre of pilgrimage. He calls Giordano Bruno, his maverick secret agent, away from his post at the French embassy to investigate.
