    A thrilling new tale of conspiracy, intrigue and rapier-sharp wit, starring the inimitable William Shakespeare. All is not well in Venice. Threatened daily by papal assassins, William Shakespeare and his close friends, Oldcastle and Hemminges, are increasingly isolated - the lies that have protected them so far beginning to wear thin. His companions want desperately to leave, but Will is tied to the city - his lover, the beautiful Isabella, is growing ever sicker.
