I love the story and all the details. I love the confusion and mystery. So, if someone whether it is a combination of a fairy tale, Charles Nicole, it is bound to please me. This book is a biography and non-sci-fi thriller Crime Writers' Gold Dagger Award winner James Tait Black Memorial Prize - are well-deserved!

Mallory is a very controversial poet and playwright. In 1593, he was stabbed to death in Deptford restaurant. To say the least, is the manner of death and circumstances. A heated debate Marlowe's account and the official results, at best, be called suspicious.


Nicole's life this style and originality of the historical mystery, woven into a wonderful combination of facts, conjecture, and fiction. He is a very complex study of Marlowe's death, but Elizabeth's social side of the seedier it is also a wonderful study.


Historical research between Nicole Marlowe's murder, was very well written, "Mao Dun, and the wealth of detail to describe the period of superb balancing act, one asked him if he is not born again, leaving!


The story so buy it, the writers need to read it if they have time to write it is a scientific work, but above all to sit and enjoy doing a true Englishman.
