Product description

Review

A gorgeous book - rich, intelligent and dark in equal measure. It immerses you in the late 16th century and leaves you wrung out with terror. This is historical fiction at its most sumptuous. ― Rory Clements, author of the the John Shakespeare

Wonderful! Beautiful writing, and Perry's Elizabethan London is so skilfully evoked, so real that one can almost smell it. ― Giles Kristian, author of Lancelot

I knew before I got to the bottom of the first page that The Angel's Mark was the real thing. In an increasingly crowded field, this one is going to stand out. ― S. G. MacLean, author of The Seeker series

An impressively dramatic and gripping debut novel. Elegantly written, thoroughly researched, The Angel's Mark draws us into the murky world of Elizabethan London where life is a game of chance, and savage death a close neighbour, quick to pounce on the unsuspecting. I predict that we will be seeing much more of Nicholas Shelby, physician and reluctant spy. ― Anne O'Brien, author of The Scandalous Duchess

The Angel's Mark has the pace of a thriller... S.W. Perry is a welcome addition to the ranks of historical crime novelists. ― Simon Brett

A remarkably assured and classy debut. Perry grabs your attention from the first paragraph and holds it throughout a fascinating journey into high and low life of Tudor London. This could, hopefully, be the start of an addictive series. ― L C Tyler

A strong and convincing debut -- Antonia Senior ― The Times

A tense whodunit and a fine debut. ― Weekend Sport

An engaging Elizabethan thriller ― Sunday Times

[A] sad, compassionate story beautifully told ― Daily Express
