Last week we published the first in a trilogy of historical mysteries set in the court of the infamous Borgias, Anselmo e l’omicidio di Giovanni Borgia.
And as it is with buses, which come along in threes after you’ve waited ages and ages for one, so too with historical mysteries: Anselmo e la moglie spagnola is the second in the trilogy.
What’s it about? Sounds quite ‘hot’…
Spanish wives! I do like a Spanish accent.
Let’s see, then – here’s the description from our online shop:
Meet Anselmo the apothecary, now owner of the most successful pharmacy in Bruges, but formerly of Rome, where he was known as the man to turn to with probems no one else could fix.
A pair of dark-haired horsemen arrive at Anselmo’s home in Belgium having galloped for weeks north through Europe. Their employers, Spanish aristocrats who married into the Borgia family, now find their lives in danger because of a new alliance between the Pope and the French. Will Anselmo help?
Of course, the apothecary can’t refuse a plea for help. Nor the chance to return once more to the court of the Borgias, the setting for his first adventure three years earlier.
So geopolitics rather than Renaissance romps. Oh well…
