Read full description of the books:
It would seem I have an obsession, make that two obsessions (as far as reading goes at least). One is Elizabethan England (amend that to medieval and Tudor England) and the other is the murder of Christopher Marlowe.
"Entered from the Sun" follows two investigations into Marlowe's gruesome death four years after the fact. The true hero of our tale is the vibrant, brilliant and brutal city of London and all the variety of life and lives dwelling within.
Mr. Garrett writes in a style of the era yet not so far in that we in our time are unable to follow. Our sleuths are Joseph Hunnyman, a player and whatever else he needs to be, hired in a most devious fashion by an unidentified man acting as agent for ???? The second sleuth is Captain Barfoot, a soldier whose body tells the story of his many experiences in war. He is reported to be a very ugly man.
Hunnyman's advantage is knowing one of the worlds Marlowe lived in - the acting companies of London. His information is gleaned from idle conversation and gossip. Barfoot's intelligence is gleaned from the pages and pages of writing that one man's life (especially one so complicated as Marlowe's) engenders in the offices and courts of her majesty's government.
I found "Entered from the Sun" highly entertaining, funny, well written in an interesting voice.
