Tudor intrigue, murder and the dark arts - the second in a stunning and acclaimed historical series starring Dr John Dee, perfect for fans of C.J. Sansom
Phil Rickman lives on the Welsh border where he writes and presents the book programme Phil the Shelf on BBC Radio Wales. He is the hugely popular author of The Bones of Avalon and the Merrily Watkins Mysteries.
Praise for The Bones of Avalon: 'Phil Rickman is one of my all-time favorites. He's done it again with his usual sense of permeating atmosphere, with vivid characters in a complex plot that grows through the bones of history like a deadly nightshade.' Diana Gabaldon 'Brilliantly imagined and grippingly executed' The Times 'This one is rather special... Rickman makes a wonderfully assured leap into the sixteenth century... compelling and historically convincing' Spectator
