Publisher's Summary

A thrilling new tale of conspiracy, intrigue and rapier-sharp wit, starring the inimitable William Shakespeare.

All is not well in Venice. Threatened daily by papal assassins, William Shakespeare and his close friends, Oldcastle and Hemminges, are increasingly isolated - the lies that have protected them so far beginning to wear thin.

His companions want desperately to leave, but Will is tied to the city - his lover, the beautiful Isabella, is growing ever sicker. As tensions reach breaking point, their company is forced to split....

Once more full of swaggering charm, breathless action and rapier-sharp dialogue, this is the second in Benet Brandreth's highly acclaimed series reimagining the lost years of William Shakespeare.

Slightly farcical imagination of the heroic Bard

Narration is brilliant. Luke Lampard is a find - hope he does more authors. An eclectic wink to possible origins of the future famous Bard's best ideas conceived in a whimsical adventure quest. Love, tragedy, nobility and villains blend together in a slightly hapless way one can easily imagine a bunch of actors on the grand tour get embroiled in. Not history, firmly fiction and a good bit of fun.
