On the eve of the Globe’s production of Hamlet, Shakespeare scholar and theater director Kate Stanley’s eccentric mentor Rosalind Howard gives her a mysterious box, claiming to have made a groundbreaking discovery. But before she can reveal it to Kate, the Globe burns to the ground and Roz is found dead—murdered precisely in the manner of Hamlet’s father. Inside the box Kate finds the first piece in a Shakespearean puzzle, setting her on a deadly, high-stakes treasure hunt.

From London to Harvard to the American West, Kate races to evade a killer and decipher a tantalizing string of clues, hidden in the words of Shakespeare, that may unlock literary history’s greatest secret.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abigail | 2/13/2014

    " Excellent literary mystery/thriller. Fun read, entertaining and imaginative. Any Shakespeare fan will enjoy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 1/17/2014

    " This had a da Vinci Code feel to it. It used a lot of Shakespearean quotes (which I'm a little rusty on). It was a little difficult to follow the logic at times, but all in all I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 1/7/2014

    " Fun summer read. It's like the Da Vinci Code for English majors. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Isobel | 1/5/2014

    " Interesting if a little unbelievable. Sometimes hard to keep up with the twists and turns and the jacobean gossip. Enjoyed the various theories as to whether Shakespeare was someone else - hadn't really read much about those before "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 12/29/2013

    " A murder mystery centered around whether Shakespeare wrote Shakespeare or if it was someone else. Interesting ideas, but I found the book tedious. It's one of those where you have to really focus on your reading or you can get lost. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles Pearce | 12/15/2013

    " A pretty good mystery about the hunt for a lost Shakespeare play. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alaina Patterson | 10/11/2013

    " For the full review (and to see what results when Dan Brown happens to smart people), head over to That's What She Read dot Wordpress dot com. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah | 6/16/2013

    " I am thoroughly engrossed! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Delcie | 6/16/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book!! I didn't even know there was a passionate controversy about who wrote Shakespeare's plays! It was smart and exciting, but there was some language in it. I would definitely read it again, though! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fan Francis | 3/6/2013

    " A walkthrough with the author on the secret of Shakespeare in this novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 2/14/2013

    " I mostly like sci-fi, but this book really delivered. It's suspenseful and a pleasure to read. It took a little while to get going, but turned out really well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vgriffis | 1/3/2013

    " The author is a Shakespearian scholar and wrote a "DeVinci Code" mystery about a unpublished play of Shakespeare. Lots of action, almost too much to absorb. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erika | 11/17/2012

    " A good but not great Shakespeare identity mystery. Did like that part of it was set in Cedar City, home of the reknowned Utah Shakespearean festival. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 8/16/2012

    " If you've read lots of Shakespeare, you'd probably enjoy this more. It was OK, except for the fact that the main character seemed rather blase about the trail of bodies she was leaving behind her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kiki | 7/21/2012

    " I recently received this book for x-mas and loved it. It's very conspiracy theory based, but if you love all things Shakespeare, but don't mind a little blasphemy, this would be a great read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig S. | 3/10/2012

    " Not sure I would like the subject matter. Picked it up because I love historical mysteries. Good book. Grabbed my attention early and kept it. Good adventure. Good conclusion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa M | 3/5/2012

    " fun read about who shakespeare really is set in recent times "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krista mallet | 7/21/2011

    " This book was ok but at times I found it hard to keep track of the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tbergamin | 5/22/2011

    " This was a rip-snorting read! It even made me download
    "Macbeth" to my e-reader as I hadn't read it since high school. Very well paced and interesting historical detail. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 5/16/2011

    " This book is great for historical fiction fans, especially those who love a mystery with a lot of Shakespeare thrown in. A real page-turner that keeps you racing toward the end with enough academic integrity to make you feel smarter for reading it. Wonderful! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chuck | 5/10/2011

    " One of the most maddening books I've read.Chocked full of details but I learned something about Shakespeare but probably won't remember it tomorrow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/26/2011

    " I never realized there were conspiracy theorists who believed Shakespeare didn't write his own work. Very interesting aha moments that made me rethink his works that I've read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail | 4/3/2011

    " Average. Second half better than first. Somewhat too many murders packed into too few many pages. Who knew scholars and actors could be that deadly!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 H.s. | 3/17/2011

    " probably more of a 3.5, but if you like Shakespeare, this is the book for you. Very similar to Dan Brown's books. Liked the action, thought it would make a good movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 3/14/2011

    " Sort of a DaVinci Code for Shakespeare buffs. I was into this for a while, but was a bit disappointed by the end. Kate was far too trusting of too many people... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 3/11/2011

    " Great novel. Exciting read from the first page. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathi | 3/3/2011

    " I just don't know that much about Shakespeare to love this book. I really had a hard time following all the names and places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 2/21/2011

    " Like a literary DaVinci Code, this is a fast-paced scavenger-hunt-type book dealing with the search for Shakespeare's lost play... a fun ride not to be taken too seriously. "
