Listeners who appreciate Shakespeare's comedies, or anyone who enjoys hearing about the madcap adventures of two young pseudo spies, will delight in this lighthearted audiobook about political intrigue in the reign of England's Good Queen Bess. A young William Shakespeare teams up with the charming, flamboyant Christopher Marlowe to prevent Papist conspirators from killing the queen. Narrator Aaron Lockman's sparkling, upbeat voice captures the youthful energy of the future playwrights. The narrative is filled with rhymed couplets, Shakespearian allusions, groan-worthy puns, and ribald double entendres. Lockman infuses a buoyant spirit into the action, and each character is memorable: sensitive Marlowe, darkly austere Walsingham, assassins, thieves, noble ladies, women not noble and hardly ladies, plus many others.
