Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
John Bossy's meticulously researched book creates a fascinating snapshot of a brief but important period in the Tudor period when all that protected England from the might of Catholic Europe was our spy network. The author convincingly argues the case that the Renaissance scholar Giordano Bruno spied for England. The only thing the book lacked was a convincing explanation as to why he did it. Perhaps we'll never know.
