THE MARLOWE CONSPIRACY - historical thriller

1593, Elizabethan England


In a turbulent time of wars, famine, and religious persecution, Christopher Marlowe struggles to balance his life as England’s most popular playwright with his duties as a government spy.

Suddenly, when he falls under suspicion of atheism, a capital crime, Marlowe fears his many powerful enemies have launched a conspiracy to have him executed...

With only a few days to clear his name, he quickly enlists the aid of a young William Shakespeare – one of the few friends he can still trust. Together, they race through Marlowe’s tangled life of crime, espionage, and noble connections to expose the conspiracy and save him from the hangman’s noose.

But will anything save a man as troubled as Marlowe?


NOW AVAILABLE -- $4.95

Woops ... Dreams, you may also have removed the buying link (I guess MG had included too heavy a cover image). I wonder if he might modify his signature to a mere link so we could see that. I for one would like to take a look at this book. Best wishes. Neil

Hi Dreams, have now included a smaller image and link. Hope this is better.

And thanks for the swapped emails off list, MG. (Dreams lives up to her forum name meantime, by yet again helping everyone out -- thanks, Dreams). Really looking forward to the read. What a coincidence that you and a couple of our own authors have been stalking the same Will, eh? Good luck and best wishes. Neil

Hi Neil,

I hope the release of Shakespeare's Will is going great. Let me know how it does.

Best,

Matthew

I just discovered that there will be a movie next year on Christopher Marlowe!!!

It will be based on Anthony Burgess's novel A Dead Man in Deptford, starring some top British Actors. Check out the link:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1499910/news

Essentially, the story will center on the idea that Marlowe was a spy assassinated by the Elizabethan government -- a similar concept to my own novel. Hopefully the upcoming buzz around the film will help raise awareness for THE MARLOWE CONSPIRACY. We shall see...

Fingers crossed!

Val McDermid on Christopher Marlowe

One of my favorite authors, Val McDermid, wrote this article on Christopher Marlowe in The Guardian:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/culture/20...topher-marlowe

It's very apt that a murder mystery writer would be fascinated with Marlowe and the unresolved nature of his death. This is one of the main inspirations for my own novel...

I'm a bit of an Elizabethan nut myself, MG. Although thrillers aren't my cup of tea I'll check your book out anyway. It sounds interesting.

Thanks a lot, CJ -- that means a lot, coming from another historical fiction author.

By the way, great cover for THE MERCENARY'S PRICE!
