Synopsis

The Mammoth Book of Jacobean Whodunnits by Mike Ashley

The seventeenth century was a time ripe with murder, anarchy, war, political and religious intrigue, of which the Gunpowder Plot is only one example. This unputdownable new anthology from Mike Ashley presents 25 whodunnits set in those turbulent times - also the age of the Witchfinder General, 'revenge' tragedies and the colonization of America. Stories of murder and mayhem centre on the true role of Guy Fawkes, the English Civil War and the fate of Charles I, plus the lost colony of Roanoke and the tale of Pocahontas. This is a fast-paced anthology for a thrilling time in British history.

Reviews

'Reveals the strength and ingenuity of this sub-section of the whodunnit genre... Great fun.'
Good Book Guide
