Summer, 1585. As English ships are held captive in Spain, fear mounts of an Invincible Armada, built by King Philip II, and intended to invade English shores. Sir Francis Drake prepares to embark on an expedition by royal commission to cross the Atlantic and seize major Spanish ports, diverting Philip's American treasure supplies to Queen Elizabeth. Giordano Bruno, radical philosopher and spy, accompanies his friend Sir Philip Sidney to Plymouth to oversee Drake's departure. Unbeknownst to Bruno, Sidney intends to join the mission - and he wants Bruno to go too. But when a ship captain is brutally murdered, and Drake's life threatened, it becomes clear that someone plans to destroy the expedition before it begins.

I have read the series and they are wonderfully written. It feels like time travel without the cholera.

The second book of a series. Well developed characters, situated in Elizabethan times. Clever plots in which the protagonist, a former Italian monk is on the run from the Inquisition. He turns out to be a formidable detective with nine lives. Light but enjoyable reading
