Shakespeare: The Most Famous Man in London

By Tony Thompson

Young, handsome and talented, actor and playwright Will Shakespeare’s plays are packing them in The Globe. He is without a doubt the most famous man in London. But Will is more than a celebrity. He is a skilled swordsman who carries two daggers with him at all times. His friend, Christopher Marlowe, has been murdered and Will knows he will have to be smart to avoid the same fate. But being smart comes naturally to William Shakespeare — and he is about to make it bigger than he ever dreamed possible.
