really liked it
bookshelves: historical, 1400s, england

I loved this 6th and final (?) volume in the Joliffe the Player series.  Joliffe rejoins his troupe of players after a sojourn as a spy in France.  In Piety, it is harvest time in 1436, and Joliffe discovers that Basset. the troupe's leader is laid up in a hospital, where, of course, there turns out to be mysteries to be solved.

The mulling over of the clues tends to be a bit repetitive, but does help if one forgets the connections between characters.  Reminded me of Alexander McCall Smith in that respect.
