    "The Deeper Sinn" What happens when you both libel and slander the dead? And if you write a play about them and invite a paying audience to see it and hear the lies? The dead can't sue, so here they haunt and literally destroy everything on the stage, overturn tables and let sandbags fly. This is just part of the joy in this book, which captures a deeper than usual Charles II and Nell Gwynn. She raises a reluctant revenant to wake up Charles from the dead, and we follow them as they interact with a group of vain, but washed-up show people. The King seems to be following his mistress' agenda, but in seeming to satisfying her he actually helps the living come to terms with each other. Some wonderful prose and turns of phrase pepper the book, which provided me with a most enjoyable easy night's read. Douglas Ready

    "Past Meets Present" Anyone with an interest in either theater or the Restoration will enjoy this book. The author has created an entertaining tale of ego driven modern theater folk and their encounter with Charles II. Here we read less about the King's mistresses but gain insight into his motives. Too often he and Nell Gwynn come off as silly and window dressing; here she is troubled and demanding, and he a somewhat rueful rouge. His reactions to both the good and bad in our age especially caught my attention, as did his perspective on the times he lived in. The work runs a speedy 183 pages, and I recommend it for its charm and style.
