The time period is Elizabethan England, the world of Shakespeare, and the plot involves an attempt on Queen Elizabeth I's life. The man accused is a Portuguese physician and three chlordane (Jewish) attempt to save him as well as convince Wm. Shakespeare to soften his play about Shylock. Given that the Jews were driven out in 1290 and not returned until 1655, one might say this is all a little far-fetched. But it is a child's murder mystery.
