Product description


The Spy of Venice begins with a three page introduction that left me gasping . . . I'm anxious to read future books in this series! Author: Impressions in Ink

The Spy of Venice is a playful and inventive debut. The dialogue is wonderful, and Will's banter with his fellow actors sparkles. Author: Antonia Senior Source: The Times, Saturday

This is a clever book. On the level of storytelling alone, this is a good yarn....I also had the distinct impression that Benet Brandreth had a ball whilst writing it. An excellent read. Source: Crime Squad

It is historically accurate, building up a picture of a dirty and violent London, a sumptuously degenerate Venice and a Europe riddled with conflicts of religion, power and commerce. Ultimately The Spy of Venice is an amusing and fast-paced action thriller that will entertain a variety of readers. Source: Historical Novels Society

Brandreth sets us up for a smashing sequel. Source: The Hindu

For fans of Shakespeare, the book can be a joyous treasure hunt, a display of erudition, insightful and exciting. For others, it may simply be an action-packed novel Source: Dawn.com

'Brandreth has used Shakespearean dramatic penchant to improve his already entertaining 'romp'. The Spy of Venice, is in a nutshell, an apt book to curl up with, especially to escape from our boring everyday life into the world of Elizabethan drama.' Source: The Free Press Journal

Brandreth's Shakespearean expertise and storytelling skills are both put to good use in this playful, entertaining novel Source: BBC History Magazine
