Holy Spy Summary


Holy Spy: John Shakespeare 6 by Rory Clements

*The Sunday Times TOP TEN BESTSELLER*. For fans of C J Sansom and S J Parris, HOLY SPY features the Queen's Intelligencer John Shakespeare in the latest of Rory Clements' acclaimed and bestselling series of Tudor spy thrillers. Clements, winner of the Ellis Peters Historical Fiction Award, 'does for Elizabeth's reign what C.J. Sansom does for Henry VIII's' Sunday Times

In London's smoky taverns, a conspiracy is brewing: a group of wealthy young Catholic dissidents plot to assassinate Elizabeth, free Mary Queen of Scots - and open England to Spanish invasion. But the conspirators have been infiltrated by Sir Francis Walsingham's top intelligencer, John Shakespeare.

Shakespeare, however, is torn: the woman he loves stands accused of murder. In a desperate race against time he must save her from the noose and the realm from treachery. And then it dawns that both investigations are inextricably linked - by corruption very close to the seat of power . . .

Holy Spy Reviews


An exuberant plot and dialogue that hums with Elizabethan slang, profanity and wit ....Clements delivers a bawdy, engaging romp of book. * The Times *
Sixteenth-century London comes alive in all its tawdriness. * Daily Mail *
A world spiced with delicious characters . . . The novel wears its historical learning lightly, and Clements seasons it with romance and humour. * Mail on Sunday *
Enjoyable, bloody and brutish. * Guardian *
