“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.

Rory Clements has provided the reader with a historical detective adventure. This has been done without the usual padding to lengthen the storyline. The appeal will be to everyone who likes instant gratification.

Set in a wintry England Sir John Shakespeare matches wits with his arch enemy. Who is that, I hear you ask ? Read this novella to find the answer. I won;t spoil the enjoyment !

Short story by Rory Clements, quite readable but could have been developed a little further to make the novel more interesting.

Rory Clements is a brilliant writer. I have read nearly all his books now and found the next to be as exciting as the last. Not a book you can put down.
