The story opens with the death of Christopher Marlowe – or so the world is led to believe. But is Marlowe truly deceased? And who or what is behind the faking of his death?
Enter William Shakespeare, Marlowe’s grieving friend, who is called upon by a group of Londoners to write a play with a King and three witches in the plot. Ah yes, Macbeth!
The story encompasses a number of players and plots. The author constructs a mystery based on facts which I found delightful and compelling. Based on my limited knowledge of the times and political subterfuge which existed during Shakespeare’s life, I wondered if the author uncovered a hidden secret about the Bard.
Is Macbeth really a cursed play and if so, why? You will need to read this book to find out!
