    This book isunusual as the troupe are taken overseas to Prague to avoid the plague but the usual high standard of historical accuracy and character portrayal pervades However, I found the plot itself a little contrived and not really handled as well as in others in this excellent series Overall it was still fun to read, but didn t quite hit the high standard attained by others in the series.
