The Dead of Winter: Three gripping Tudor historical crime thriller novellas from a No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling fiction author: Three Giordano Bruno Novellas Kindle Edition
‘Fans of Parris’s superior mysteries featuring cleric-turned-sleuth Giordano Bruno, seen most recently in Conspiracy, will be delighted by this stellar collection of three novellas from his early years. This is an accessible entry point for newcomers’ Publishers Weekly (starred)
Praise for S. J. Parris:
‘A delicious blend of history and thriller’ The Times
‘A tight plot combines with subtly-realised characters and an omnipresent sense of danger … My pleasure in the vividly textured backdrop and a cracking story was accompanied by an uneasy shudder’ Daily Mail
‘Colourful characters, fast-moving plots and a world where one false step in religion or politics can mean a grisly death’ Sunday Times
‘S. J. Parris is one of my favourite authors – and unquestionably our greatest living writer of historical thrillers’ A.J. Finn
‘Vivid, sprawling … Well-crafted, exuberant’ Financial Times
‘Successful historical thrillers need three elements: a killer plot that weaves seamlessly into the history; an engaging protagonist; and an atmospheric sense of place. Parris nails all three’ The Times
‘Pacy, intricate, and thrilling… Full of historical detail and rich with atmosphere’ Observer
‘I can thoroughly recommend Conspiracy, which twists and turns like a corkscrew of venomous snakes’ Stuart MacBride
‘Parris’s Giordano Bruno series has been a joy’ Sunday Telegraph
‘Impossible to resist … Parris creates a convincing sense of the past, woven with so much intrigue that the head fairly spins’ Daily Telegraph
‘It has everything – intrigue, mystery and excellent history’ Kate Mosse
A classy mystery’ Observer

I found them very helpful in understanding the man we meet in the first novel, Heresy. While not strictly necessary to get into the novels they provide the colour to the man we meet and explain some of the references in the novels that are easily glossed over but knowing the backstory adds depth to the plot.
Good reads, easy to get into and insert yourself in the storyline.
