    I really like this series, a lot. "Prince" is the third, and I already have the next one, "Traitor", on my Nook. Clements has based each novel
    on actual historical events, full of precise details, with the actual names of many important figures. The Elizabethan Era, is one of the
    golden ages of England, and Clements seems to know it, like few others. His protagonist, is John Shakespeare(yes, Will's older brother),
     who is an intelligencer for the precursor to MI5. This particular storyline has to do with a plot by Spain, to create havoc in Britain, by a
    terrorist bombing in London, while assassinating the Scots King, James, and replacing with the alleged Prince, a bastard child of Mary,
    Queen of Scots, and an ambassador. Add famine, and the plague, and you have a mixture that's rife with tragedy, particularly for
    Shakespeare, himself. A goodly amount of action, terror, and suspense, makes this book, and series, a very worthwhile read.

    This is an episode of the John Shakespeare mystery series. Our hero is tasked with solving multiple mysteries in this edition, which may or may not be intertwined.

    The multiple mysteries excellently wrap around throughout the tale as they are investigated and both true and false leads are investigated.

    At times gritty yet always exceptional in details are the scenery, characters, and seemingly period appropriate descriptions (is. employment, dialogue, etc).

    A brief reference at the end of the tale, allows a glimpse into actual history as well.

    Overall, an intriguing read!

    Good book

    I really appreciated the author's understanding and use of actual historical trends and events, and his tieing them to modern themes and tropes.
