Historical novel set in 16th century Spain, the era of John of the Cross and the Spanish Inquisition
Canticle Liz McSkeane
ISBN: 978-0-9957916-3-3 Click here to buy an ebook of Canticle Canticle is a historical detective novel that delves into a 400-year-old tale of power struggles, political manoeuvring and misinformation. Fray Martín de Sepúlveda, Dominican friar and former professor at the University of Salamanca, is living in obscurity after a scandal that cost him his job. Three years later, he is summoned to Madrid where he receives a secret commission: to investigate the life and work of the long-dead Fray Juan de la Cruz, and to find the manuscript of his most famous poem, the Spiritual Canticle (Cántico Espiritual). As Fray Martín grapples with his investigation and the attentions of the Inquisition, he becomes embroiled in a quest to separate fact from fiction, reality from propaganda. "A formidable feat of imagination underpins this marvellous detective novel set in late 16th/early 17th century Spain...Canticle is a tale for our time, rife with insitutionalised power struggles, truth and misinformation, manipulated in the interests of the elite - same as it always was and is."  Anthony Glavin, The Independent Cover image by Jordi Forniés
