Elsinore’s. A trendy jazz café in Newcastle’s bustling Quayside. A thin cover for a seedy underworld of organised crime and small-time Geordie mafia. The King has died and his brother has married his widow and taken over The Business. But something is rotten as conspiracy, double-dealing, and treachery are rife. Where life is cheap and the currency is murder, will young
Hamlet revenge his father’s untimely death?
