Rosalind Archer has secrets. Her father is in jail. She and her brother, Robin, are in hiding. Desperate to survive, she cuts her hair and disguises herself as a boy.

When the popular playwright Christopher Marlowe takes on Rosalind as his servant and scribe, she hopes that she and Robin will be safe, at least for a time. But Marlowe has secrets, too, and he is involved in something more sinister than writing plays for the Rose Theatre. A paper scribbled with mysterious symbols, an urgent warning, and a blood-stained letter all hint at danger that Rosalind is only beginning to understand.

Rosalind's own secrets could lead to her death. But as she is pulled deeper into Marlowe's life, she finds that his secrets are just as deadly and even more likely to be revealed. And when they are, Marlowe isn't the only one who will be in peril. . . .
