Marbeck and the Double-Dealer
From the author of the successful Thomas the Falconer mysteries comes a new historical series featuring Elizabethan intelligencer Martin Marbeck . . . 1600: a new century dawns. War with Spain has dragged on for fifteen years, the conflict in Ireland for six. Unease stalks England in the dying years of Elizabeth I’s reign, and Elizabethan intelligencer Martin Marbeck is bored. Then a message from his spymaster, Sir Robert Cecil arrives: the existence of a spy has been discovered, code-named Morera, and Marbeck must uncover the true identity of this traitor quickly, before rumours of the young King Philip III forming a new Armada prove themselves to be true.

Review: Marbeck and the Double-Dealer (Martin Marbeck #1)User Review - Karens Botanicals - Goodreads
Can be read in one sitting. Spying was so very difficult at the end of the Elizabethan age. The guilty are found by a process of elimination. If only there had only been phones to tap and emails to gather. Read full review
