2017/02: Her Majesty's Will -- David Blixt
Kit considered for some little time. "It is a plan both reasonable and wise."
"And therefore you loathe it."
"Exactly. But I see little choice in the matter." [loc. 1856]

A frivolous and light-hearted novel, based on the premise that Shakespeare met Marlowe in the 1580s and got caught up in the world of Elizabethan spycraft: with, as they used to say in the Radio Times, hilarious results.

There are occasional anachronisms and the authorial voice is sometimes intrusive -- but this was a fun read with a nice frisson between stolid, more-or-less sensible Will and mercurial Kit.
