A Tip for the Hangman, by Allison Epstein


The strengths of this book are in the characters and their voices, because they really have unique and interesting voices. The story itself drags a bit in places, but the vividness of Marlowe as a protagonist makes up for it. The ending is pretty amazing, and I would guess even more perfect if you're familiar with Marlow's plays. Probably more of a 4.5, I waffled on the scoring of this one.
