Della Quercia's intrigue is a unique blend of thoroughly researched facts and captivating fiction. (Jean-Vincent Roy, historian, Assassin's Creed™ Syndicate)
Full of puns--"Bless my sole"--and wordplay--"woad warriors"--this historical thriller is also an homage to Ian Fleming's James Bond-ian world: Will becomes a "Double-O operative" and reports to Sir Thomas Walsingham, who's known as "W" and has a secretary named Penny, who fancies the agent. Add bull-baiting, human sacrifice, gruesome executions, and an epic London street battle, and what results is an erudite tour de force. (Kirkus Reviews)
