    John Shakespeare is sent to retrieve Dr. Dee from Lord Derby's m

    John Shakespeare is sent to retrieve Dr. Dee from Lord Derby's manor and becomes entangled in potential poisoning investigation. Boltfoot must protect Mr. Ivory and the perspective glass from would-be marauders and thieves. Andrew Woode, Shakespeare's adopted son, has been accused of a felony and is on the run.

    These mysteries and events are all masterfully intertwined in this edition/episode of the Shakespeare mysteries. The narrative is heavily yet delicately detailed allowing for intense action and plot as well as character development.

    Characters from prior episodes, as well as new characters, are true to life and develop as the story progresses.

    Historical accuracy is consistent throughout.

    Overall, an intense read.

    Could not get past the first two chapters

    While well written the grafic descriptions of body functions violence and unpleasant descriptions of the era were just too much. Tried another thinking it was the just this one book and even worse. Less historical accuracy might have been better especially if around the players which now i think of it there is another series
