Review:

A delicious blend of history and thriller The Times

Praise for S. J. Parris:

A tight plot combines with subtly-realised characters and an omnipresent sense of danger ... My pleasure in the vividly textured backdrop and a cracking story was accompanied by an uneasy shudder Daily Mail

Colourful characters, fast-moving plots and a world where one false step in religion or politics can mean a grisly death. Sunday Times

Vivid, sprawling ... Well-crafted, exuberant Financial Times

Successful historical thrillers need three elements: a killer plot that weaves seamlessly into the history; an engaging protagonist; and an atmospheric sense of place. Parris nails all three Conspiracy is a gem. The Times

This latest addition to the series will no doubt repeat its predecessors success... The authentically febrile air of suspense that Parris generates, as well as a shoal of red herrings and some impish, what-if plotting. The drawing-room style denouement, conducted as it is in a salon at the Tuileries Palace, is also executed with knowing relish. Observer

I can thoroughly recommend Conspiracy, which twists and turns like a corkscrew of venomous snakes Stuart MacBride

Impossible to resist ... Parris creates a convincing sense of the past, woven with so much intrigue that the head fairly spins Daily Telegraph

It has everything intrigue, mystery and excellent history Kate Mosse

Parris writes with confident ease of Tudor London ... The dialogue balances nicely on a tightrope of period phrases and cut-to-the-chase colloquialisms. More, please The Times

Full of surprises ... an imaginatively satisfying addition to the many real intrigues surrounding the imprisoned Mary Stuart and the threats to Elizabeth s security TLS

Fascinating ... The period is incredibly vivid and the story utterly gripping Conn Iggulden

A brilliantly unusual glimpse at the intrigues surrounding Queen Elizabeth I Andrew Taylor, bestselling author of The American Boy

--Andrew Taylor, bestselling author of The American Boy
