Overview

As The New Globe Players bring laughter to audiences with their production of Shakespeare’s comedy Twelfth Night, Suzanne Thornton must bring justice to the tragic victim of a brutal murder…

When the body of a young boy—murdered, mutilated, and clothed in women’s attire—is found under London Bridge, Constable Pepper believes him to be a member of The New Globe Players, one of the actors who specialize in women’s parts.

He is not, but Suzanne, summoned to make an identification, does recognize him from an encounter in the tavern the night before—as the alluring doxy who caught the eye of more than a few of the patrons. Suzanne suspects that whoever hired him for the night reacted violently when his true sex was discovered.

Moved by the lad’s fate, Suzanne determines to find his killer. And first, she must uncover his identity—an investigation that leads her to one of England’s wealthiest families and a powerful politician determined to keep the truth from being revealed at all costs.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
09/01/2014
In her third historical outing (after The Opening Night Murder and The Scottish Play Murder) Suzanne Thornton, founder of the New Globe Players, recognizes the body of a young boy dressed in women's clothes. He was the alluring doxy who flirted with patrons at the local tavern the evening before. Did someone object to his true gender when it was revealed? Thornton decides to investigate.
Publishers Weekly
07/07/2014
At the start of Rutherford’s appealing third Restoration mystery (after 2013’s The Scottish Play Murder), a soothsayer warns prostitute-turned-actress Suzanne Thornton to avoid the River Thames, as well as her favorite pub, the Goat and Boar. Suzanne can’t stay away from her friends at the Goat and Boar, where one night she spots a flirtatious boy “just beginning his entry to manhood” dressed as a girl. The next morning the boy’s mutilated body is fished out of the Thames. Suzanne is capable of a bawdy line (on expensive wine: “Anything less would not be worth the swallowing, much like most men I’ve known”), and of (somewhat anachronistic) pique when women are insulted, or when it’s suggested that boys turning tricks by definition could not be raped. Most readers will spot the murderer’s identity a mile away, but all will find Suzanne a charming narrator. (Sept.)
