The life of William Shakespeare is shrouded in mystery. There are no records of his daily life, and no one in his home town seems to have known that he was a successful London playwright while he was alive. Even the monument at his burial site - the bust of a balding man with a quill and parchment - was an 18th-century replacement. The original depicted a figure with his hands on a malt-sack, a man whose profession was not that of a writer, but of a dealer in grain. Seeking to cast off Shakespeare's cloak of secrecy, this book depicts a bizarre double life of conspiracy, treason and murder. The authors also wrote "King Arthur: The True Story".
