This is a great 'who-done-it' book that employs vast elements of history as well as the dark side of the occult. When young women of the court begin to turn up dead in deplorable ways and marked with the symbols of an ancient prophecy it is up to Giordano Bruno, a renegade monk, to try and figure out who the culprit is.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book being a lover of history as well as the fact that Queen Elizabeth is one of my utmost favorite historical figures. S.J. Parris is a wonderful novelist who seems to have a knack for drawing the reader in and keeping them secured firmly in place until the very end. Definitely pick up this book!
