Short but very enjoyable
on 20 November 2014
“The man in the snow” is a short e-book featuring John Shakespeare.
When a body is found in the snow, it leads Shakespeare and Boltfoot to the rather unwelcoming household of the Earl of Oxford and a tale of murder and espionage begins to unravel.
I am rather vague about the plot as some of the characters of this book are mentioned in “The Heretics” so I don’t want to spoil any plot there.
Before reading this book I looked as to where this book fell into the actual John Shakespeare series and the website said it was 5.5 which I took to mean that I should read after book 5 (The Heretics) which I did. Unfortunately, after reading it, it appears (in my opinion) it should actually be read before book 5 because of one line in the e-book.
Anyway, that aside, “The man in the snow” was a very enjoyable book and it kept me gripped until the very end – I only wish that the story had been developed into a full length novel.
