The Life of Harris the Actor
London, 1686. Harris, a dying actor, sits with the friend who will write his life: a tale of debt, jealousy and womanizing, of service to the Duke he hates. He tells how England was gripped by fear of a religious plot to kill the King and replace him with his Catholic brother the Duke. There is a still darker plot Harris must tell before he dies. But can he trust his friend to write the true Life of Harris the Actor?
Best-selling author R.J. Ellory says:
Utterly mesmeric, brilliantly-crafted, a rare and perfect gem of a book. Roberts has created not only a genuinely compelling protagonist, but an entirely authentic world. I really cannot recommend this highly enough.
