An imminent Papal election gives the murder of a brothel-keeper in a locked room an unexpected political significance.Implicated in the case is the seventeen-year old Cesare, the precocious natural son of the front-runner in the election, Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia.It will take a man of extraordinary intellect to find out what really happened, but just such man is on hand, a scientist, artist, engineer, mathematician, and philosopher named Leonardo da Vinci.If he fails, then the Borgias will unleash their notorious enforcer, the formidable Miguel de Corella – who does not like it when people call him Michelotto – to sort things out in a far less intellectual fashion.Yet this is not a conventional detective story.

Leonardo wants more than the name of a murderer. He is a seeker of Truth, the Whole Truth and nothing but the Truth. To him solving the case means following its political and philosophical implications all the way to their end.This leads him into the subtle, complicated world of Renaissance politics, a series of long verbal chess games, in which a single wrong word can cost a man his life, the last of which brings him face to face with the greatest player in Christendom.Charles is happy to reply to e-mails, polite ones only please, via [email protected] – we are new to Kindle technology, so please be patient while we sort out any formatting problems, and we would welcome you telling us about any editing errors you might spot.
