Murder by Misrule
by Anna Castle
Francis Bacon is charged with investigating the murder of a barrister at Gray's Inn. He recruits his unwanted student Thomas Clarady to do the tiresome legwork, chasing witnesses from Whitehall to the London streets. Everyone has something up his pinked and padded sleeve. Even the brilliant Bacon is at a loss — and in danger — until he sees through the disguises of the season of Misrule.
