Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An evening well-spent It's a compact thriller that you'll be able to pour through in one night. It sometimes plays fast and loose with history, and those with a greater familiarity with Marlowe's life and works (and Elizabethan culture and drama generally) will likely be able to glean more from some of the narrative's details, but I think any lover of energetic prose will enjoy this one. Welsh provides a poetic, pseudo- Elizabethan dialogue that really crackles.
