Pistols! Treason! Murder! by Jonathan Walker
Book Description"Pistols! Treason! Murder!" is a highly original biography of Geralamo Vano, one of Venice's first spy masters. Through surveillance reports and seventeenth-century archives, historian Jonathan Walker uncovers a coded world of politics and espionage, terror and intense paranoia.For survival and in the perfection of his art, Geralamo Vano developed superb skills in spinning fictions. His deceits lead to the arrest and execution of guilty and innocent men, before being put on trial himself in 1622. Jonathan Walker brings Vano to life and pieces together the universe through which he moved. Interested in pushing the boundaries of how history is told, the book includes playful comic strips, transcripts of imaginary conversations and a bar-crawl around contemporary Venice. Walker's story of intrigue and betrayal will fascinate and enthrall.
