Pressestimmen"This book is a detective story told by a masterly historian." Diarmaid MacCulloch, New Statesman & Society "Read the book. It is, quite simply, brilliant." Susan Brigden, Country Life "Bossy's creative, thoroughly researched and engaging work emulates the investigative style of the best detective fiction." Deborah E. Harkness, Sixteenth Century Journal "Mr. Bossy's erudition is so great, his virtuosity in handling it so enviable, the story he tells so fascinating, and he tells it so well, with such verve and subtlety and wit... This is a marvellous book." H. R. Trevor-Roper, New York Review of Books "Bossy combines meticulous research with a lively style and guides the reader along the alleys of Elizabethan espionage to some startling conclusions." Andrew Roberts, Sunday Telegraph "A very real tour de force by a very clever historian."
