Murder by Misrule: A Francis Bacon Mystery (The Francis Bacon Mystery Series Book 1)

Brilliant Francis Bacon is at a loss -- and in danger.




Bacon must put down his books and investigate the murder of a fellow barrister at Gray's Inn in order to regain the queen’s favor. He recruits his pupil, handsome Thomas Clarady, to do the tiresome legwork. The son of a wealthy privateer, Clarady will do anything to climb the Elizabethan social ladder.




The first clues point to a Catholic conspirator, but other motives for murder quickly emerge. Rival barristers contend for the victim's legal honors and wealthy clients. Highly-placed courtiers are implicated as the investigation reaches from Whitehall to the London streets.




Bacon does the thinking; Clarady does the fencing. Everyone has something up his pinked and padded sleeve. Even Bacon is at a loss — and in danger — until he sees through the disguises of the season of Misrule.
