London 1593. Francis Sparry is barely scraping a living, writing pamphlets for the printers around St Pauls, when a lucky commission to translate a handbook on geomancy looks set to improve his prospects. Caught up in a plot to discredit Sir Walter Ralegh, he’s forced to flee England for a crime he didn’t commit and gratefully accepts the one-time royal favourite’s invitation to join his expedition to the New World. He really should have known better…
The first thrilling instalment from the papers of Francis Sparry, gentleman and geomancer.
