4.0 out of 5 stars Goes from strength to strength as rival to CJ Sansom
SACRILEGE follows the further adventures of Parris's Italian Renaissance hero Giordano Bruno in ELizabethan England, and it's a corker. The author is well into her stride now, and the story grips from the opening, when our hero realises he's being followed by a possible assassin, only to discover the he is a she - and Sophia the woman he loved in HERESY. Accused of...

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the third book in a trilogy (well, unless any more come along!) but can be read as a standalone, although there is obviously some background detail. It's a thriller type story, set in the Tudor period of which there presently seem something of a glut. Parris' hero, Giordano Bruno is an outsider due to being an Italian in England (in the same way CJ Sansom's Shardlake is an outsider due to his disability).

It took a little while to get into, but when I did it was an enjoyable read. There are several quite gruesome murders and some serious jeopardy for the hero. If you like historical mysteries and don't mind a bit of blood, I think you will enjoy this.

Parris never fails to delight with intrigue. Giordano Bruno is a brillinat 'hero' surrounded by other great characters. The Elizabethan setting is described wonderfully. This book leaves you wanting more and more.
