Good yarn.I enjoyed reading this book, the story flowed well to keep the interest up If you a looking for a who dun it then I suggest this isn t the book for you as it s plain almost from the start who dun it It s not quite Shardlake, but it is a good book for a winters night The characters are engaging, if a bit stereotyped, but I think that adds to the charm of the novel.I ll definitely look out for the second of the series just to see what they all get up to. Different perspectiveThere are many crime books set around Tudor England but this one takes a new angle.Seen from a rural, village perspective and with a lead character who has no noble title or role it gives a different insight into the society of the time.

set in Shakespeare s England, it is a pleasant in costume thriller that starts from the death of a young actor lusted by a lovely lady whose husband has strange tastes The merchant who, by election, has to deal with the investigation, helped by his wife, woman of quick intellect, is able to solve the mystery, even if the sentence will not arrive for the committed crimes, but for political

despite its subtitle is an historical mystery that works reasonably well in both categories, but never truly captivates It kept me reading, but when I d finished, I could put it aside easily It s not the sort of book that lingers.Clothier Matthew Stock serves as village Constable, reporting to Magistrate Sir Henry Saltmarsh But what is Stock to do when the murders start piling up and the evidence points to Lord Saltmarsh himself First, a boy traveling with a group of players, taking the female roles, is found murdered Then, there s a suspicious suicide This is followed by a roadside accident that may not have been an accidental at all.The Players Boy Is Dead illustrates some interesting facets of life at the turn of the 18th Century Tourney shows us a class bound society, where changes in status are both difficult and dangerous He offers a potentially engaging mystery, but gives readers few clues, so that the resolution feels as if it comes by happenstance as much as anything else The most interesting aspect of the novel is its depictions of the theater scene in London and rural England.If you re a fan of historical mysteries, you ll find diversion in this title, but it s not apt to prove satisfactory for those not already committed to the genre .FREE DOWNLOAD ⚖ The Players' Boy Is Dead ⚖ The first book in the Joan and Matthew Stock mystery series set in Elizabethan EnglandThey were a small player s troupe, come to perform for a lord and his lady And none of the rag tag group shone than the young players boy, with his flaxen hair and fine features Indeed, he had won a scullery maid s heart, and it was she, at cock s crow, who went searching for him in the stables where he slept But, alas, she found him dead murdered in a most gruesome way And now Constable Matthew Stock must search high and low, from a Lord s castle to a disreputable inn, to find the person who dealt such an ungodly blow The players boy, Richard Mull, has been found disemboweled in the

done I m pleased to have found a new to me historical mystery author. I liked the series but not enough to ever read anyof them, for some reason.
