Death by Disputation

Please join me in congratulating Anna Castle on the publication of the second book in her Francis Bacon Mystery series, Death by Disputation! I was honored to work with Anna on a developmental edit and a copyedit, and I designed the cover. Anna's first book in this series, Murder by Misrule, was named one of Kirkus Reviews' Best Indie Books of 2014! This second installment picks up right where the first book left off, and it's another zinger full of wit and wisdom, dastardly villains, pretty ladies, and dashing heroes. Here's the book description:

Thomas Clarady is recruited to spy on a group of radical Puritans at Cambridge University. Francis Bacon is his spymaster; his tutor in both tradecraft and religious politics. Their commission gets off to a deadly start when Tom finds his chief informant hanging from the roof beams. Now he must catch a murderer as well as a seditioner. His first suspect is volatile poet Christopher Marlowe, who keeps turning up in the wrong places. 

Dogged by unreliable assistants, chased by three lusty women, and harangued daily by the exacting Bacon, Tom risks his very soul to catch the villains and win his reward.

Death by Disputation is available now in ebook and print format on Amazon, and it's on sale through March 6th! Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and check out Anna's website, where she blogs about Francis Bacon and writing historical fiction set in Tudor England.
