The characters are both believable and likable and the storyline revolves around Joliffe a traveling actor and playwright and the insight into the theatrical world of the time is both interesting and enlightening. In this particular story Joliffie and the company of players act as spies among the Lords of the land as they vie for the coveted position of regent to young Henry VI. However when men begin to die violent deaths, the players become fearful for their own lives.
All in all, for a fascinating, not too demanding, and totally entertaining read by a first-rate author .. do read this!

The Joliffe books are best read in order as the company and the background are developed one on top of the next,
A word of caution: Don't have several on hand because as you finish one you will open the next and keep reading to find out what happens next with Basset, Elias, Rose, Piers, Gil and Joliffe now that they have some protection against the rough edges of survival in medieval England.
PS, Margaret Frazer's notes are helpful when trying to keep all the historical personages seperate from the fictional ones.
