Othello l’Amour, by Christopher Marlowe.  Edited for 21st century gumshoes by Alf Dotson: From the Jamestown Shake¬speare Manuscripts comes the first hard-boiled detective story ever written; possibly, the most thrilling.  In 1588, in Venice, the daughter of a white senator eloped with the commander of the armed forces, an African, and fled to the island of Crete.  Her father, Signore Brabantio, hired Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593) – poet, university wit, playwright, atheist, homosexual, and government agent – to find her and bring her home.  Here is a tough-guy case that has it all – scandal, gold, pearls, a magic totem, a doting patriarch, a husband war-hero, a cross-dressed lover, a rosy-cheeked boy, a femme fatale, a stupid constable, ethical ambiguities, and five violent deaths, in one night – all five cases being solved before breakfast.
