Synopsis of book»

In pursuit of a private vendetta, the young Niccolo Machiavelli leaves his beloved Florence in the grip of the fanatical friar, Savonarola, and travels to Rome only to be lured into the service of the Borgia Pope Alexander VI and his power-hungry son, Cesare. Machiavelli soon becomes embroiled in confidential missions which will put his own life in danger- the only way out is to outscheme the schemers.

Based on the recently discovered Escobaldi Papers, believed to be written by the notorious Renaissance politician Niccolo Machiavelli, Derek Wilson's Renaissance mystery is a deliciously cynical novel that transports the reader into the heart of late 15th century Italy.
