I kept seeing “The School of Night” by Louis Bayard in my book club magazine and always thought it looked really interesting, so while I’m in Elizabethan mode, I wanted to read it.
It’s also another scavenger-hunt type of book dealing with clues about a lost letter written by Sir Walter Raleigh which mentions Shakespeare and the secretive (if it existed) School of Night.
It was very entertaining and page-turning. I love historical thrillers, especially those featuring real, notable people. This was the first book I’ve read by Louis Bayard, but I also have his book featuring Edgar Allan Poe on my to-read shelf.
