Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this evocative novel, set in 1597, two men are hired by conflicting political factions to get to the bottom of Christopher Marlowe's mysterious murder. Was the famous playwright the victim of a drunken brawl or did his death have a sinister dimension of political intrigue?

Synopsis:

Set in 1597, George Garrett's evocative novel pivots on the murder of Christopher Marlowe. Marlowe, the celebrated poet and playwright, has been dead for four years when a couple of engaging sleuths begin to follow the twisted trail that led to his death. Two men, Hunnyman, the quicksilver actor of many roles and acquaintance of Marlowe, and Barfoot, a volatile soldier/spy, are hired by two conflicting political factions to get to the bottom of Marlowe's mysterious murder. Was the famous playwright the victim of a drunken brawl or did his death have a sinister dimension of political intrigue? Every page of the book is haunted as this consuming investigation plays itself out.
