"The first installment of this series was such an immensely enjoyable read that it's hard to imagine the author equaling it, let alone topping it. But topped it he has: the second adventure of Symington Smythe and Will Shakespeare is in every way superior to its predecessor. This splendid novel is a pure pleasure to read, from beginning to end. This series should be required reading for all fans of historical mysteries."-"-Booklist, " Starred Review
