Not the book to read first in the series as this #4 in the Joliffe the Player series
, is more of a filler or bridge to the next books in the series. Joliffe and company are in London and involved in the political intrigues of 1435 involving young King Henry VI.
I love the descriptions of London during this time period, and the connections with Shakespeare's plays. Though there were some surprises, this book is low on the suspense ratio and I'll be looking for more of a mystery in the next book, A Play of Treachery
Includes an Author's Note at the end explaining the connections to actual British history.
