Set in a plague-ridden London in 1593, someone calling himself "Tamburlaine", the name of the hero in one of Marlowe's most famous plays, has written a libellous and heretical pamphlet in a style of writing similar to Marlowe's.

Marlowe is called before the Privy Council which accuses him of writing the pamphlet; however, he protests his innocence. Marlowe is sentenced to death for this blasphemous writing and only has three days to figure out who really wrote the pamphlet and track that individual down. Marlowe becomes entangled in a web of intrigue, plots and counterplots before his eventual murder.
