London is suffering through another Plague, and the theatrical company known as Lord Westfield’s Men decide to tour the country to avoid it. Even before they leave, one of the company is murdered and then when they get out of town, they find that their rivals, Banbury’s Men, have somehow stolen their closely-guarded plays and are stealing their audiences to perform them. And *then* one of the young apprentices, who plays all the female roles to perfection, is kidnapped. Can bookholder Nicholas Bracewell keep the company together, solve these problems and not get killed in the process?....This is I think the third volume in this Elizabethan series; I’ve read some of the novellas and at least one (later) novel, picking them up as I come across them. I like Mr. Marston’s writing style and I like his main character Bracewell quite a bit, but for some reason this particular outing didn’t impress me. I think possibly there was just too much plot for the slim (212-page) volume to handle; it all felt rushed and overblown somehow. I’ll keep reading the series as I come across it, but this particular story just didn’t quite work for me.

First Sentence: Enemies surrounded them.

Bookholder Nicholas Bracewell and the theatre company of Lord Westfield's Men decide to leave London in an effort to avoid the plague, which seem already to have felled one of the troupe's members. More the plague troubles the troupe. They find their plays have been given to a rival company, who are performing them on the road just ahead. When a young player is kidnapped, Nicholas is determined to learn who is out to sabotage his troupe.

Although I am not as big a fan of Marston's "Elizabethan Theater" books as I am his "Domesday" books, this was still a very enjoyable read. Nicholas Bracewell is an intriguing character about whom we learn a bit more and who grows as a character with each book. He is the core of reason and sanity in the world-wind of artistic personalities and the vanity of actors. His background of sailing and fighting with Sir Francis Drake make him a strong, credible investigator.

Marston fine eye for history is well portrayed in aspects. From the dialogue, to the vagaries of an actor's life on the road, a look behind the scenes of Elizabethan theater and the dangers of the political and religious times; Marston doesn't "pretty-up" the period but helps us understand the challenges of living during that time. At the same time, I appreciate Martson's humor and the bombastic personalities of some of the characters which enliven and lighten the plot.

This was a short, light, fascinating read that I very much enjoyed and series with which I shall continue.

Edward Marston is the pseudonym of Keith Miles, a fairly prolific and extremely good writer of mainly Elizabethan and medieval mysteries. He has also written mysteries under his own name with both sporting and golf backgrounds. However it is primarily the books that take place earlier in history that I am interested in. He read modern history at Oxford and has had many jobs, including university lecturer, but fortunately for all his readers, he turned to the writing profession.

This is the third in the series of Books featuring Nicholas Bracewell, a member of an Elizabethan players company called Lord Westfield's Men. A group of actors who perform at both theatre's and also the inns in and surround London. Nicholas not only has the job of Bookholder, a very important position in the Elizabethan theatre, but also has become somewhat of a detective, who in previous books has been able to solve murders and mystery that seem to overtake the band of actors.
