The Assassin of Verona

(The second book in the William Shakespeare series)
A novel by

A thrilling new novel of conspiracy, intrigue and rapier-sharp wit, starring the inimitable William Shakespeare.

All is not well in Venice.

Threatened daily by Papal assassins, William Shakespeare and his close friends Oldcastle and Hemminges are increasingly isolated - the lies that have protected them so far beginning to wear thin.

His companions want desperately to leave, but Will is tied to the city - his lover, the beautiful Isabella, is growing ever more sick. As tensions reach breaking point, their company is forced to split...

Once more full of swaggering charm, breathless action and rapier-sharp dialogue, this is the second novel in Benet Brandreth's highly acclaimed series reimagining the lost years of William Shakespeare.

Praise for Benet Brandreth

"Playful and inventive . . . The dialogue is wonderful, and Will's banter with his fellow actors sparkles." Antonia Senior, The Times

"Entertaining and ebullient . . . The author knows his Shakespeare backwards (the Venice setting has been carefully chosen), rejoices in its wordplay, loves his allusions and has a good time with his characters. So did I." Elizabeth Buchan, Daily Mail

"A Venetian romp" Telegraph
