Who was most wickedly murdered, by the means of his disloyal and wanton wife, who, for the love she bare to one Mosbie, hired two desperate ruffians. Black Will and Shakebag, to kill him. Wherein is shewed the great malice and dissimulation of a wicked woman, the unsatiable desire of filthy lust, and th* shameful end of all murderers. (1592)
