Enjoyed it ! Fantastic premise for a historical mystery series. Looking forward to read more about the Fools' Guild.

Alan Gordon continues the story that William Shakespeare began in Twelfth Night. The Duke of Orsino has died under mysterious circumstances and Malvolio, believed an agent for some other power, is thought to be at work again. In response, Feste the Fool is called into service to investigate. For, as it turns out, the Fools' Guild is actually a cover for an international organization of operatives dedicated to preserving balance in Europe and the Middle East and acting as a counterweight to the Catholic Church.A friend recommended this one to me based upon my enjoyment of medieval mysteries but I fear we must agree to disagree on this one. The dialog bothered me from the beginning, too glib and anachronistic for my taste. As the story progressed, the situations just seemed too contrived and the characters a little too slick.I gave it 60 pages and stopped.

Quick easy read (It's not "The Name of the Rose," but it has its moments.)
