Rotten at the HeartBartholomew Daniels
Who better to solve a crime than the keenest observer of human nature in history? Rotten at the Heart is the first in a series of Shakespearean mysteries featuring and narrated by the Bard himself.
London, 1596. With his patron's mysterious death leaving Will on the brink of ruin and eviction, he's forced to fall back on his own inimitable powers of observation in order to ferret out the killer and in so doing unravel a conspiracy that goes straight to the beating heart of the court of Queen Elizabeth I.
Rooted in historical fact and written in Will's own accessibly Elizabethan voice, Rotten At the Heart explores the intersection of religion, politics, and corruption, and underscores the sacrifices that honour demands when a troubled man finally discovers his own.
