At age 14 William Shakespeare’s younger brother Richard ran away from a brutal master and sought refuge with his brother in London. After seven years he tired of playing the parts of women and girls in William’s acting company, but his brother was in no hurry to give him meaningful men’s roles. When Will’s two newest scripts were stolen, it was Richard who retrieved them, putting his life in danger. This novel by Bernard Cornwell is filled with historical and theatrical information, well-developed characters, intrigue, romance, and a fast-moving, ever-surprising plot.
