Description
Giordano Bruno was a real-life 16th-century monk, poet, scientist, and magician, on the run from the Roman Inquisition on charges of heresy for his belief that the earth orbits the sun and that the universe is infinite. This alone could have gotten him burned at the stake, but he was also a student of occult philosophies and magic. In S.J. Parris's gripping historical fiction, Bruno's pursuit of this rare knowledge brings him to London, where he is unexpectedly recruited by Elizabeth I and sent undercover to Oxford University to ferret out Catholic sympathizers. But his mission is thrown off course by a series of grisly murders, and Bruno realizes that no one at Oxford is who he seems to be.

"As one Oxford fellow after another falls to gruesome homicide, Bruno struggles to unravel Oxford's tangled loyalties. Parris (the pseudonym of British journalist Stephanie Merritt) interweaves historical fact with psychological insight as Bruno, a humanist dangerously ahead of his time, begins his quest to light the fire of enlightenment in Europe."Publishers Weekly (starred review)
