(2016)
(The seventh book in the Chronicles of Christoval Alvarez series)
A novel by

 
 
When Kit Alvarez returns from Muscovy, it is to discover that her post as physician at St. Thomas' hospital has been given to another. Trying to eke out the small income she earns from some of Dr. Nunez's private patients, she undertakes paid work as a copyist with James Burbage's company.

But the players' companies find themselves under threat. Two of Burbage's men are murdered. One of Henslowe's men is attacked. And two important new plays go missing, one by Will Shakespeare and one by Christopher Marlowe.

Are the thefts merely the work of a jealous, unlicensed company? Or is there a conspiracy afoot to use the plays in some more dangerous game?
