Synopsis

The Queen's Head by Edward Marston

HE WAS EGOTISTICAL, VERBOSE AND HOT-HEADED TO A FAULT. BUT HE DID NOT DESERVE TO DIE...His name was Will Fowler, an actor in the esteemed theatrical company called Lord Westfield's Men, a vibrant young man flushed from the success of a recent performance at The Queen's Head theatre. So exuberant was he that he persuaded the resourceful manager of the company, Nicholas Bracewell, to quaff a pint or two at a nearby pub. Alas, it was to be Will's last taste of beer. A tavern brawl left him dead - but not before he gasped for Nicholas to find his fast-fleeting, red-bearded murderer and administer a just revenge. Yet finding Will's murderer in London's dark, crowded streets was a seemingly impossible task - not to mention the fact that Lord Westfield's Men were just commanded to appear at the court of Elizabeth I - an honour one dare not refuse ...

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

Insightful reader reviews and unbiased recommendations. I don't know how I chose books before Lovereading! An essential for all book lovers.

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.
