Synopsis

1593 and London is a city on edge. Under threat from plague and war, it's a desperate place where strangers are unwelcome and severed heads grin from spikes on Tower Bridge.

Playwright, poet, spy and man of prodigious appetites, Christopher Marlowe is working on his latest literary effort and enjoying the English countryside at his patron’s estate when this idyll is cut short. A messenger from the Queen and the nefarious Privy Council summons his immediate return to London. And in the following three days Marlowe confronts dangerous government factions, double agents, necromancy, betrayal and revenge in his search for the murderous Tamburlaine, a killer who has escaped from between the pages of Marlowe's most violent play and is scandalizing London. The author must confront his creation, or die.

Tamburlaine Must Die is the suspenseful adventure story of a man who dares to defy both God and his Queen - and discovers that there are worse fates than damnation.
