Book for today...

With very many thanks to my friend Elaine - jaffa and I have been given the opportunity to read the third book by Rory Clements - Prince

I really enjoyed the first two in this series of books set during the reign of Elizabeth I, and featuring John Shakespeare in his role as investigator, and Tudor crime solver. The books are usually gloriously atmospheric, managing to convey just the right amount of mystery, whilst keeping the historical integrity intact. I think that Rory Clements is a very talented author, and this series of books stacks up very well when compared to C J Sansom's excellent Shardlake series.
Now that I've finished the wonderful The Gallows Curse - I'm looking forward to stepping from the medieval age to the Tudor - in the turn of a page.....
