Protected in a removable Brodart cover. Stated First Edition: December 2002 with full number line.. 0.86 x 8.58 x 5.78 Inches. 304 pages. A Shakespeare and Smythe Mystery, No. 3. Fledgling playwright Will Shakespeare and Symington Smythe, ostler and would-be thespian, are firmly ensconced in their theater company. But due to the plague, all of Londons theaters have been closed. The players are broke, and our intrepid duo must seek employment in other lines of work - Smythe smithing and Will poeting.Then a murder rocks all of London. A handsome young craftsman kills a wealthy merchant trader in what was apparently an argument over the reputation of the traders daughter, a beautiful, dark lady to whom the craftsman was engaged. The situation has all the elements of classic Greek tragedy and in no time at all our out-of-work thespians are making Much Ado About Murder.
