The Reckoning: The Murder of Christopher Marlowe
J. Cape, 1992 - 413 páginas
This is a story of the Elizabethan underworld.

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.
