London, 1593: It is three weeks before the murder of Christopher Marlowe, playwright and spy in Queen Elizabeth I's secret service -- a crime that remains unsolved to this day. Marlowe is hoping to find his missing muse as he sets off on a new intelligence assignment. . . and closes in on the secret that will seal his fate. New York City, present day: Renaissance scholar turned private eye Kate Morgan investigates a shocking heist and murder involving a mysterious, antique manuscript recently unearthed in central London. What secret lurks in those yellowed, ciphered pages. . . and how, centuries later, could it drive someone to kill? Propelling us from the shadows of the sixteenth-century underworld to the chambers of a clandestine U.S. intelligence unit, from the glitter of the Elizabethan court to the catacombs of ancient Rome, The Intelligencer's dual narratives twist, turn, and collide as they race toward a stunning finale.

Synopsis:

THE INTELLIGENCER is an expertly crafted mystery that entwines two stories in one spellbinding narrative - one tale is set in the 16th century underworld of espionage, and the other centres on Kate Morgan, a modern day spy. Morgan, a young Harvard graduate working at a private investigation company, introduces us to a world of intrigue, where nothing is as it seems. While uncovering the secrets concealed in a centuries old tomb, she follows leads on two cases - one a covert operation for the US government, and the other a legitimate operation for a beguiling English businessman. Though Kate Morgan's story dominates, through beautifully crafted historical passages we follow the uncertain fate of a young Christopher Marlowe, the playwright, poet, and gentleman spy of Queen Elizabeth's secret service. As the two stories progress, we realize that Kate's own fate may not be so far from her literary hero's, as she draws closer to uncovering the mysteries behind Marlowe's ill-fated demise.
