From the author of Legacy, now a major BBC Film, comes a brilliant
new historical crime novella for fans of Antonia Hodgson and CJ
Sansom. `To Mr Thomas Combe my sword.' These six words in
Shakespeare's will tell us that Shakespeare had a sword. Did he
wear it? Did he use it? What sort was it? When and why did he get
it? What happened to it? Might it - does it - still exist? These
questions plague Simon Gold, an antiques dealer. He believes he has
identified the sword as belonging to a customer, an unworthy owner
indifferent to cultural icons and uninterested in history. Simon is
desperate to acquire the sword, but how? How far is he prepared to
go to get it? In alliance with Charlotte, his customer's attractive
and disaffected wife, Simon finds himself going farther than he had
intended - and finds, too, that Charlotte is rather more than she
appears. Praise for Alan Judd: 'Judd has an infallible grasp of
intelligence' Spectator 'Wonderful. One of the best spy novels
ever' Peter Hennessey on Legacy 'Plotting in the best le Carre
tradition' Mail on Sunday 'Belongs to the classic tradition of spy
