    A truly excellent mystery where the good guy dies early, the murder comes later and you know who the bad guy is from the start and thoroughly enjoy watching him being undone.

    Review I didn t think that this one was quite as good as the previous one in the series because it sees the company separated which I don t like, but that s just personal opinion I can understand that this split might bring the company together stronger in future books, and I hope it does just that I did like the mystery, but it seemed a bit implausible in places Nevertheless it was really interesting and engaging, especially towards the end as it comes towards a climax Genre Historical Review I didn t think that this one was quite as good as the previous one in the series because it sees the company separated which I don t like, but that s just personal opinion I can understand that this split might bring the company together stronger in future books, and I hope it does just that I did like the mystery, but it seemed a bit implausible in places Nevertheless it was really interesting and engaging, especially towards the end as it comes towards a climax Genre Historical Crime MysteryCharacters Nicholas Bracewell Lawrence Firethorn Francis Quilter Gerard Quilter George Dart Owen Elias Barnaby Gill Eliard SlaneySetting London England Series Nicholas Bracewell 12Recommend YesRating 18 20

    You know exactly what you re going to get with this series, and this doesn t fail to deliver Full of atmosphere, with larger than life characters and an impossibly perfect hero, this is another case involving Nicholas Bracewell and his troup of Elizabethan players Will Nicholas solve the murder and save the day And how many times can the author write bawdy basket Fun, diverting stuff.

    This is the first book i have read by this author I don t think it matters whether you have read the previous books in the series, the characters are fully defined and the plot is easy to follow For me the biggest problem is that the first 100 pages are so repetitive and add little to the plot which i think could have been equally well laid out in half the number of pages A gentle and enjoyable mystery nevertheless

    An interesting mystery We know what happened and follow the sleuths as they try to gather evidence to clear the man convicted and accuse the evil doers Writing very choppy.
