William Shakespeare was a Spy

by Musketman Shakespeare

When Spain invaded Protestant England in 1588, William Shakespeare, then aged 24, was a Catholic spy employed as a recruitment officer by the Spanish navy. Read all about it in THE CORISCO CONSPIRACY, an engrossing account of the chain of cloak-and-dagger misadventures that took him from the Spanish Armada to the Gunpowder Plot by way of West Africa, whence came the princess who wrote the plays for which he is famous as well as the hitherto unidentified Dark Lady of the Sonnets.
