A return to the city of Orsino from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, this time as the setting for a murder mystery. The deceased is the Duke from the original play and the malefactor is Malvoleo, reprising his role as the villain from the original play. The narrator is the character known as Feste the Fool, a representative of the Guild of Fools, a league of individuals who act to manipulate events for the greater good as a secret brotherhood, rather like the Masons or the Illuminati. The language is crisp and fits both the source and the setting.
