‘Successful historical thrillers need three elements: a killer plot that weaves seamlessly into the history; an engaging protagonist; and an atmospheric sense of place. Parris nails all three – Conspiracy is a gem.
— The Times

Bestselling authors S.J. Parris (pseudonym of critic Stephanie Merrritt) and Charles Cumming discuss our eternal fascination with spies and espionage, and their new novels, Conspiracy, Parris’s latest thriller featuring 16th century spy, Giordano Bruno, and Cumming’s A Divided Spy, which sees a former MI6 officer caught in a dangerous game of cat and mouse between Moscow and London.
