    1 thought on “The Scottish Play Murder”

    1. A mysterious stranger shows up for an uninvited audition. Unfortunately the stranger turns out to be not nearly so mysterious as he seems. The book is an light, entertaining read. However, the connection between the characters and the plot seems quite contrived.

    2. Not the best mystery I ever read, but not the worst either. The historical research on the Restoration period is evident, and it's the most interesting part.

    3. Restoration London, "fictional" Globe Theatre, Shakespeare's works being practiced and staged, nobility stooping to piracy and murder, strong female protagonist -- what's not to love? This is second in series and the author is careful to note in afterward that she is well aware that the Puritans had done away with The Globe, but she "prefers not to" recognize that fact. Heroine Suzanne Thornton displays courage, diligence, intelligence and business acumen in running the theatre. The cast of char [...]

    4. Since she's persuaded her former lover to buy the old Globe theater, Suzanne runs the place, and overrules the superstitious director when a handsome Scot arrives demanding that they put on Macbeth. But a run of deaths almost persuades her that the play really is bad luck. It's fortunate that Suzanne has noble patronage in the cut-throat, class conscious world of Restoration England, because she's determined to investigate, even though the effort takes her from an earl's home to Newgate prison. [...]

    5. I love good historical fiction, but really could not enjoy this attempt. The only excuse for putting these characters and this plot into a contrived historical frame is that the "mystery" and the forensic methods used to unravel it are too primitive to be believable in a more modern setting. Alas, they are barely believable in the historical setting and the historical features are in themselves anachronistic and utterly unconvincing.

    6. This is okay but borrows a lot of tropes--even for a mystery. There's a certain dis ingenuousness about the whole matter and some of it seems overly contrived--from our man clothes wearing heroine to the policeman who doesn't really care to our Scotsman--and why is it everyone is in love with this old strumpet? That's not clear.Great potential with little payoff.

    7. I enjoyed the first book of this series, but this one is better. A fast read, good plot and characters that show development from the first book.

    8. Very good. The author paints a vivid picture of 17th century restoration England. Great story and really good mystery.

    9. Not bad. An interesting premise. Now I want to read the first in the series, Opening Night Murder, I believe it's called.

    10. I love the idea of a mystery, Shakespeare plays, Restoration time period, and a strong female lead! Great read!
