THE DAY OF ATONEMENT: Coming this September

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

In 1745 the Portuguese  Inquisition came for Sebastião Raposa’s parents.  While his mother and father died in the prisons beneath the Palace of the Inquisition, young Sebastião was smuggled out of Portugal.  Now, ten years later, he returns to the city he hates, disguised as an English merchant, with one purpose in mind: find the priest who destroyed his parents and exact vengeance.  But Sebastian Foxx will learn that Lisbon is no less treacherous than when he left, and soon he is embroiled in schemes plotted by friends and enemies alike — and it will become increasingly difficult to tell the difference.
