Summary

A smart and gripping tale of conspiracy, murder and espionage in Elizabethan London. Treason sleeps for no man....

London, 1591. Nicholas Shelby, physician and reluctant spy, returns to his old haunts on London's lawless Bankside. But when the queen's spymaster Robert Cecil asks him to investigate the dubious practices of a mysterious doctor from Switzerland, Nicholas is soon embroiled in a conspiracy that threatens not just the life of an innocent young patient but the overthrow of Queen Elizabeth herself.  

With fellow healer and mistress of the Jackdaw tavern Bianca Merton again at his side, Nicholas is drawn into a dangerous world of zealots, charlatans and fanatics. As their own lives become increasingly at risk, they find themselves confronting the greatest treason of all: the spectre of a bloody war between the faiths....

Similar to bk1 but still good

I enjoyed the Angels Mark as I like this period of History and I have got to know and like the characters. It is well written and lots of action in there. Plenty of ‘who controls who?’ type twists. Not annoyingly soppy and heartfelt at the same time is not an easy balance to strike. Similar but not the same as Angels Mark. I will be looking out for the other books in the series. It is well read on audible. Recommended especially to Toby Clements and CJ Samsom fans.

Poor plot/storyline, boring and confusing (at times) listen.

Genuinely sorry I persevered with this sequel. All round, very poor! A chore at times.
