Convict's Opera by Stephen Jeffreys

Book Description

On board a convict ship to Australia, the prisoners stage their own version of John Gay's 18th-century romp-with-songs, "The Beggar's Opera", finding it easy to identify with the villainous but charming hero, Macheath, whose repeated brushes with the law serve only to interrupt his compulsive womanizing.

I Just Stopped by to See the Man by Stephen Jeffreys I Just Stopped by to See the Man, Paperback (December 2000)

Jesse is the last of great blues singers. A mistaken identity in a car crash means everybody thinks he's dead. A rock-music megastar tracks Jesse down to his house in Mississippi and persuades him to join the band's farewell concert. But Jesse's resurrection provokes more than the fan's idolatry.

Clink, The by Stephen Jeffreys Clink, The, Paperback (June 1999)

Elizabeth I is at death's door. Conspirators are everywhere. A politically-sensitive trade delegation is on its way to London. Who can be trusted to entertain them? Comedian Lucius Bodkin thinks he'll hit the big time but he's reckoned without the Tudor backstabbers and the City wide-boys.
