I love books centered around medieval royals especially from the Angevin to the Tudor periods. Surfing for more books after devouring all one credit books by Philllipa Gregory and several by Elizabeth Chadwick, and looking for books read by John Lee, I discovered S.J Parris. You don't have to, but, I recommend you listen to Heresy first so you can get a good introduction to Giiordono Bruno, an excommunicated monk and esoteric philosopher turned private investigator who mingles with the royal court while working for the French ambassador.
This is a great thriller/mystery story that narrator John Lee (my favorite) turns into a delightful listen and keeps you coming back for more, books that is and multiple listens as well.
If you like this series, Heresy, Prophecy, and Sacriledge check out C.J. Sanson's Matthew Shardrake mysteries set in the same era. I'm sure you will enjoy them as much as you will all of Parris's books. I have listened to some of these books twice.
I just wish S.J. Parris would publish many, many more stories centered around Bruno. I would buy them all. I love the strong character development and intermingling historical info.
Give Prophecy a listen, you won't be disappointed, especially if you like John Lee.

this is the first audio book I have stopped listening to, ever! The accents are terrible and the story line is boring. do not purchase!
