KIRKUS REVIEW

An Elizabethan tale of one Sir Walter Langlands, bastard brother of the Earl of Essex, and combining the qualities of Robin Hood and Eulenspeigel. Soldier of fortune, back from the Flemish wars, playwright, outlaw, and known to every tavern in London. A series of adventures and misadventures land him in jail at the mercy of the queen, who puts it up to him to write, within eight days, a play which will amuse her. An engaging tale, plenty of color, humor, and vigorous pictorial qualities, for those who like the Sabatini type of story, and can do without modern sex motives.
