About the Author:

After a career in national newspapers, Rory Clements now lives in a seventeenth-century farmhouse in Norfolk and writes full time. When not immersing himself in the Elizabethan world, he enjoys village life and a game of tennis with friends. He is married to the artist Naomi Clements-Wright. There are five books in the John Shakespeare series of Elizabethan mysteries: Martyr, which was shortlisted for the CWA John Creasey Award; Revenger, which won the 2010 CWA Ellis Peters Historical Fiction Award; Prince, which was shortlisted for the 2011 Ellis Peters Historical Fiction Award; Traitor; and Monarch. All are published by John Murray. A TV series based on the books is currently in development.

You can find out more about Rory, his writing and the world of John Shakespeare on his website www.roryclements.com and at www.johnmurray.co.uk.

Review:

PRAISE FOR THE JOHN SHAKESPEARE SERIES 'A cracking plot full of twists right up to the last minute. I look forweard to the next' Sunday Express 'Beautifully done ... alive and tremendously engrossing' Daily Telegraph 'A colourful history lesson ... exciting narrative twists' Sunday Telegraph 'Enjoyable, bloody and brutish' Guardian 'An engrossing thriller' Washington Post 'An excellent debut' Publishers Weekly 'This is a historical thriller to send a shiver down your spine ... atmospheric - the evocation of the filth and debauchery of London is quite exceptional. Clements demonstrates the compelling eye for detail and character that Bernard Cornwell so memorably brought to Rifleman Sharpe ... I could not tear myself away, it is that good' Daily Mail PRAISE FOR PRINCE 'A genuine page turner, and cleverly weaves in real historical events and personalities. Fans will not be disappointed' Eastern Daily Press 'Intriguing ... wonderfully graphic and descriptive. Clements richly deserves the accolade: "faster moving than C J Sansom" ' Bookbag 'Clements' thrilling murder mysteries are a real cut above ... steeped in authentic 16th-century politics, the plots are complex and clever, and the characters believable and engrossing. But his greatest gift is the ability to bring to life the squalor, intrigue and perils of Tudor London and amidst it all create a superbly tense and entertaining mystery. Roll on Mr Shakespeare's Act IV' Lancashire Evening Post 'This very well-plotted, erudite, historical mystery has many twists and turns which make for a very vivid and fast story line. A very absorbing read with a real quality, similar in style but perhaps faster moving, than books by James Forrester or C J Sansom ... I was completely transfixed whilst reading it and did not want it to end. I consider it one of the best books I've read this year. I will certainly look out for more stories by this very talented writer' Eurocrime 'Blending fact with fiction Clements tells a rip-roaring yarn with vigour and energy and a huge enthusiasm for the period ... Prince is a novel lacking neither action nor spice. An undeniably enjoyable and lively plot that gathers pace and excitement throughout ... A devilishly good read' Crime Time 'There is a veritable cornucopia of elements to praise here ... John Shakespeare is one of the great historical sleuths' Barry Forshaw 'Prince is action packed, and its pages are filled with intricate layers of deception. The late Elizabethan world is brilliantly portrayed with exciting narrative twists... Historical detail is expertly integrated into sophisticated plot strands to create a seamless whole ... This novel is extremely intelligent and exceptionally well written. I could not put it down until I reached its final startling denouements' Historical Novels Review 'A cracker ... gripping' Peterborough Evening Telegraph 'What most impressed me about this story was Clements' ability to set a fast-paced crime thriller in the London of 1593 and to make it entirely convincing. Clements gives life to this world, not just through years of painstaking research into all things Elizabethan ... but through his use of real figures from history and the manipulation of actual events. What we end up with is a scenario that is believable, and perhaps this is what makes it such an enjoyable read. Whether intentionally or no, many of the topics dealt with in this book also still resonate today and it gives acts of terrorism, for example, a longer historical context' Edinburgh Book Review 'A good read, well researched and believable' Eurocrime 'Clements can be seen as doing for Elizabeth's reign what CJ Sansom does for Henry VIII's ... What's impressive in the latest is how much of Tudor society it crams in, from the court and Derby's estate to outlaws and the soldiers in its concluding scene' Sunday Times 'There's plenty of thrills ... the multiple plot elements are well-handled ... there's much that's enjoyable and Clements' orchestration of the narrative is skillful' www.displacementactivity.co.uk 'The best yet in Rory Clements' magnificent series about John Shakespeare ... As always, the historical detail is fascinating and sometimes delightfully obscure ... another sumptuous feast that will leave you sated - but craving for the next helping! Crimesquad 'I found this the best book in the series' Historical Novels Review Praise for Prince: 'A genuine page turner, and cleverly weaves in real historical events and personalities. Fans will not be disappointed' Eastern Daily Press 'Intriguing ... wonderfully graphic and descriptive. Clements richly deserves the accolade: "faster moving than C.J. Sansom' Bookbag 'Clements' thrilling murder mysteries are a real cut above ... steeped in authentic 16th-century politics, the plots are complex and clever, and the characters believable and engrossing.

Whether intentionally or no, many of the topics dealt with in this book also still resonate today and it gives acts of terrorism, for example, a longer historical context' Edinburgh Book Review Praise for Martyr and Revenger: 'A cracking plot full of twists right up to the last minute.
