Philip Gooden writes with an enviable economy of style that enables him to establish a good sense of period and character within the first few pages of his story. The slick pace of the narrative ensures that the identity of the murderer fairly soon becomes obvious but this in no way diminishes the fun. Gooden recreates the rip roaring world of Elizabethan playhouse London - all its vanity and folly and with a suitably enigmatic William Shakespeare directing the action from the wings.

Have just read this and it is brilliant, how the author joins his story with William Shakespear is a magic move and makes the book into something completely original. If the author keeps his books low cost then I will be buying a lot.

Nick Revill's engagement with The Chamberlain's Men has him balancing his enquiries alongside his theatre work. Again the pace is easy and the life of Elizabethan London is well evoked.

An interesting idea for a mystery novel though a bit overdone for my taste. The author takes Shakespeare's bawdiness to extremes but overall a fairly enjoyable read.I recommend Ellis Peters, Michael Jecks or Anne Perry for much better historical mysteries.
