The Masquerade

by Nicholas Griffin

An intriguing and stylish historical thriller which draws you into a mysterious world full of secrets and hidden menace lurking below the surface. The book has action, romance and Machiavellian subterfuge; it is brilliantly written and plotted, with subtle layers of deception revealing themselves right up to the end.


The few walks that Noon took alone plagued his mind. He already knew how Venice encouraged noise: her street corners were filled with it, her waters amplified it and her people constantly contributed to the cacophony. But for every tongue there were two ears and two feet that seemed to follow Noon wherever he went. Despite waiting in alcoves, doubling back on himself, Noon could not confirm if these phantoms were physical or illusory.
