He’s a spy for the king. She’s a fighter who barely survived a treacherous relationship. Can they try their hand at uncovering one of England’s biggest conspiracies?
In 1483 London, Andrew works as a spy for the king’s brother Richard. Through necessity, he has lived life in the shadows. When tragedy points to regicide, Andrew delves deeper into a maze of dangerous duplicity.
When young Tyballis discovers her husband has been arrested for murder, she is delighted. As a young orphan coerced to marry her abusive neighbor, she was horribly used. Now is her chance to be rid of him for good and find the confidence she never had.
When Tyballis joins forces with the motley network of Andrew’s informers and thieves, they are lured into the dark and dangerous world of medieval London’s political intrigue and back alley slums. It’s not long before Tyballis is accused of murder herself…
Blessop’s Wife is a thought-provoking mystery that fuses fact and fiction to stunning effect and explores what it means to be human.
