During the reigns of the Habsburg Charles V and his enemy the French king Francis I, the papacy desperately struggles to secure its position and undermine its political opponents.Meanwhile, as declared foes of the Roman Church, the radical Protestant Anabaptists are in rebellion against an entire order of European society and are persecuted and brutalised by those outside their sphere.In this age devastated by wars of religion, a young theology student adopts the cause of the heretics and the disinherited. Across the chessboard of Europe, from the German plains to the flourishing Dutch cities and south to Venice, our hero, an anabaptist who travels under many names, and his enemy, Q, a papal informer and heretic hunter, play a game in which no moves are forbidden. What begins as a struggle to reveal each other’s identity eventually becomes part of a much greater mission: to destroy and achieve domination over each other.Part thriller, part novel of ideas, Q is a hugely ambitious and brilliantly achieved novel set in the chaos of Reformation Europe.
