Anselmo e l’omicidio di Giovanni Borgia (C1/2)


An original Italian easy reader by Francesca Colombo

Meet Anselmo the apothecary, one of the few educated men of his day. And it’s because of his learning that he’s occasionially called upon by the powerful when they need help resolving their problems.

This time, the apothecary’s task is to discover who was behind the killing of the Pope’s son. Certainly a learned man should be able to figure it out! An important political alliance depends on his answer, not least the unity of the Borgias themselves, a powerful ruling family who are famous for their power struggles and indfidelities.

As Anselmo soon learns, though, it appears to be in nobody’s interest for him to actually find the truth. And in an age in which only power really matters, he’s playing a dangerous game…

(This is Volume 1 in the Anselmo trilogy. Volume 2 is Anselmo e la moglie spagnola and volume 3 is Anselmo e l’avvelenamento del Papa).
