Publisher's Summary

Robert Cecil, chief secretary to the king, summons the gentleman spy, Henry Gresham, to his death bed to give his arch enemy one final, deadly case. An unknown Cambridge bookseller has obtained devastating correspondence between King James I and Robert Carr, and Gresham is the one man who can return the letters, saving the monarch from a potentially scandalous downfall. Also in the bookseller's possession are two stolen manuscripts by Shakespeare, and as these plays contain a deadly secret, so too, does Gresham's mission.

Great historical adventure / mystery!

I've listened to the first 3 Henry Gresham novels and they are all great adventures! Gresham is a clever, likeable character, the plots are well put together, and the backdrop of Elizabethan England is lots of fun! A strong story with lots of action make for a great read/ listen.
