Medici ~ AscendancyMasters of Florence, 1Matteo Strukul, translated by Richard McKenna

Florence, 1429

Giovanni de' Medici is dead.

A lifetime of shrewd investment, strategic alliance and sly manipulation saw Giovanni climb from mere money-lender to the top echelon of Florentine society. But success has left a slew of bitter enemies in his wake – and there are whispers his untimely demise wasn't accidental.

Florence is a nest of vipers, and with the Medici family's wealth in the hands of Giovanni's untested sons, Cosimo and Lorenzo, there are those who feel that now is the time to strike, to destroy the upstarts and seize their holdings.

First in an award-winning, bestselling quartet charting ten generations of rise to power.
