London, 1584. Giordano Bruno travels to Canterbury for love. But finds only murder ...Giordano Bruno is being followed by the woman he once loved - Sophia Underhill, accused of murder and on the run.
With the leave of the Queen's spymaster, he sets out to clear Sophia's name.

A city rife with treachery. A relic steeped in blood. His hunt for the real killer leads to the shadows of the Cathedral - England's holiest shrine - and the heart of a sinister and powerful conspiracy ...Heretic, maverick, charmer: Giordano Bruno is always on his guard.
Never more so than when working for Queen Elizabeth and her spymaster - for this man of letters is now an agent of intrigue and danger ...
