For This Is Hell
This new occult thriller from bestselling authors Aaron Rosenberg and Steven Savile combines Elizabethan theatre, ancient mythology, and ageless seduction to create a dark, gripping tale that is both as old as time itself and wholly original.
London, 1593. Christopher Marlowe, playwright, spy, and renowned womanizer, is desperately working on what could be his greatest play. But inspiration eludes him, until a chance encounter with a dark temptress rekindles his passion and the words start to flow with that famous passion.
Forces are arrayed against Marlowe. Something doesn’t want him finishing, and it’s not just the Queen’s Privy Council, who would see Marlowe institutionalized. The Black Death is abroad—illness and madness rampage through the streets, causing death and insanity and mayhem. Marlowe suspects there is a foul agency at work, but can the incandescent playwright stop the chaos before it overwhelms the entire city?
