As The New Globe Players bring laughter to audiences with their production of Shakespeare's comedy "Twelfth Night," Suzanne Thornton must bring justice to the tragic victim of a brutal murder...
When the body of a young boy--murdered, mutilated, and clothed in women's attire--is found under London Bridge, Constable Pepper believes him to be a member of The New Globe Players, one of the actors who specialize in women's parts.
He is not, but Suzanne, summoned to make an identification, does recognize him from an encounter in the tavern the night before--as the alluring doxy who caught the eye of more than a few of the patrons. Suzanne suspects that whoever hired him for the night reacted violently when his true sex was discovered.
Moved by the lad's fate, Suzanne determines to find his killer. And first, she must uncover his identity--an investigation that leads her to one of England's wealthiest families and a powerful politician determined to keep the truth from being revealed at all costs.
