"a satisfyingly convoluted plot"

Venetian mariners, a disguised cardinal, the playwright Christopher Marlowe and a devotee of trepanation all take their place in a satisfyingly convoluted plot. Writers of thrillers set in 16th-century England work in the shadow of CJ Sansom, but Perry largely escapes it.
