Conspiracy (Giordano Bruno  #5)Conspiracy by S.J. Parris

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bruno is back in Paris, desperately seeking patronage to save him from destitution, he seeks help from an old priest friend but when said friend turns up murdered a few days later, Bruno is once again drawn into the world of murder. Taking in an austere abbey and the glamourous, debauched French court, there are more twists and turns than a very tangled ball of wool. I am up to date with the series now and have found the books to be increasingly more ‘TV-like’, which is not a bad thing, they’re very atmospheric and I like the later conclusion of wry one-liners but the number of times Bruno is wrong about a plot point, it almost feels like the ‘duh duh duuuh’ moment at the end of an episode of a TV period crime drama but then again I would like to see Giordano Bruno on TV.
