The Heretics

(2013)
(The fifth book in the John Shakespeare series)
A novel by

 
 
An exorcism ... a siege ... a stealthy killer ... What else could go wrong?

John Shakespeare - intrepid private detective and brother to a rising young playwright in Elizabethan London - is approached by a condemned Jesuit priest with an unusual proposition: the Father is haunted by the memory of Thomasyn Jade, a teenage girl subjected to brutal exorcism rites a decade past. He wants Shakespeare to track her down and offer reparations for her treatment.

As Shakespeare begins his investigation, a plot to assassinate the Queen is underway, and rumors of a papist conspiracy begin swirling from Seville. And when, one by one, Shakespeare's trusted spies are horribly murdered, all clues seem to be linked to the mysterious Thomasyn Jade ...

Heart-pounding and packed with fascinating historical detail, The Heretics is a thriller to rival the best of C. J. Sansom and Alex Grecian.
