Publisher's Summary

Tom Falconer is in trouble. Pursued by the notorious criminal Ratsey, Tom soon finds himself alone and hungry on the streets of London. Luckily enough, the mysterious Dr Mobius soon recruits Tom to play an important role in a play to be performed in front of Queen Elizabeth.
Tom knows there's something not right about Mobius, but he's willing to take a risk in order to keep his neck out of Ratsey's murderous hands. Little does Tom realise that Mobius's dark secret will trap him in the middle of an international conspiracy, holding the fate of the English empire in his hands.

Critic Reviews

"A rollicking good tale that is mostly based on historical fact, or at least historical rumor." (School Library Journal)
"Short, action-packed chapters convincingly portray the sights, smells, and sounds of lower-class Elizabethan England in 1593....[The] unique blend of fact-based characters and inspired storytelling will appeal especially to readers who enjoy an imaginative, no-holds-barred approach to historical fiction." (Kirkus Reviews)
