BANQUO’S SON, Book One, was published to great acclaim in New Zealand in by Penguin NZ. Her editor there just sent me an email from the buyer of one of New Zealand’s top chains, which went like this: “It is very, very, very good, and a very exciting piece of publishing, exactly as you said. In the play, this prophesy is left unanswered. Fleance, Banquo’s son, escapes murder, meaning that he still could become king. The reason Shakespeare put this into the play is that Macbeth was one of the first plays written under King James’ rule. Similar to Macbeth, Banquo seems unable to understand the cost of the Witches’ prophecy will be his life.

I do prefer historical novels to give some slight nod to historical accuracy. I was disappointed that the style turned out to be sloppy chiclet with weak s: The greedy, maniacal and brutal tyrant Macbeth has murdered his king, Duncan, the entire family of another thane, MacDuff, and Macbeth’s own cousin Banquo. The proud people of Scotland in the midth century are delighted when King Malcolm kills Macbeth, but Banquo’s son Fleance, or Flea as he is nicknamed to protect his identity, retains [ ].
