I just love this series of five (currently) books by S J Paris. Giordano Bruno is our unlikely hero working as a spy in ever more dangerous situations. I won't spoil things by giving away the plot. But I would strongly advise you read this series in the correct order - it makes following everything so much easier and an even more compelling read. Once I start one these books, I can't put it down. Its a brilliant read. If you like the "Shardlake" series by C J Sansom, you'll love these too. Highly recommended.

not as compelling as the first 2 books.. I found it a bit tedious at times and tended to skip the text. However, a reasonable plot, albeit a tad predictable, but I enjoyed the historical references and trust the non-fictional characters were true and reasonably realistically drawn.

I love this series. The possible liberties that Parris might take with historical characters does not trouble me at all - this is highly readable, enjoyable fiction, not a history book. I think they are great characters, and this is a superb read. Highly recommended.

The fourth book in the Giordano Bruno series has pace and a more certain hand. Still somewhat confused towards the denouement as if the author couldn't decide which solution to offer the reader. Nevertheless it approaches Sansoms skilful certainty with period.
