Point of Death

Peter Tonkin, Author Severn House Publishers $25.99 (256p) ISBN 978-0-7278-5723-1
Life imitates art, and Shakespeare's new play looks like a snuff film in Peter Tonkin's The Point of Death, the first installment of an Elizabethan crime series starring the heroic Master of Defence, Tom Musgrave. The author of the popular Mariner series (Thunder Bay) places Tom in the center of a murder investigation Mercutio was fatally stabbed during the opening night of Romeo and Juliet and the war between the two factions of the country's first secret service, in a riveting tale full of fast action and period diction (bring a glossary for terms like culverin, riever and dag).
