Pulling the battered body of a young boy out of the Thames was not unusual in the cruel London of Bloody Mary. But this was different. The messages on his body tell of a plot that will take the queen’s sister, Elizabeth, to The Tower, heralding the end of the Tudor dynasty and England’s freedom as a nation.

Margaretta Morgan, with her ability to hear the unsaid, faces her first murder mystery as apprentice to Doctor John Dee. As fear and death-tolls rise, can they identify the sinister killer?

The Conjuror’s Apprentice takes real people and events in 1555, into which G J Williams weaves a tale of murder and intrigue. Appealing to readers of crime and well-researched historical fiction, this is the first in a series that will follow the life, times, plots, and murders of the Tudor Court.

‘Thoroughly engaging, beautifully written, and highly evocative of the period…Highly recommended.’ (Zoe Sharp)
