Book Review of Prophecy (Giordano Bruno, Bk 2)

Prophecy (Giordano Bruno, Bk 2)
reviewed on + 212 more book reviews

Picking up a few months after Heresy left off, Prophecy is another great murder mystery/thriller starring Giordano Bruno as our unlikely detective and spy all rolled up into one. Rather than being set in a more remote location like Heresy, this one takes place primarily in London and is more directly involved with the court of Elizabeth I.

Unlike a lot of historical fiction, this one has nearly no romance and is primarily about finding the murderer of Cecily Ashe, as well as trying to uncover the latest plot to overthrow Elizabeth and restore Mary Stuart to the throne. Are the two things related? Is it mere coincidence that they happened at the same time?
