The Reckoning: The Murder of Christopher Marlowe
J. Cape, 1992 - 413 páginas
This is a story of the Elizabethan underworld. It is a full-length investigation of the killing, tracing Marlowe's shadowy political dealings, his involvement in covert intelligence work, the charges of heresy and homosexuality against him. Critical new evidence is uncovered about his three companions on that last day in Deptford. Through Charles Nicholl's detailed research, a complex, unsettling story of entrapment and betrayal, chimerical plots and dirty tricks emerges.

deity of Jesus Christ our Saviour , found amongst the papers of Thos Kydd
prisoner ' . Then there is a pause of some sort before the next phrase is added .
