In 1593 England, faith is a matter of life and death. Loyalties sell, and traitors die. One cobbler’s son from Canterbury, Christopher Marlowe, finds himself thrown into an impossible bind. As he comes to question nearly everything he once believed, he must choose between paths that either lead to love and honour, or guilt and death. Historical fiction with a contemporary edge, This Marlowe measures the weight of the body politic, the torment of the flesh, and the state of the soul.
