A feverishly paced action adventure (The New York Times) about a long-lost Shakespeare work and a killer who reenacts the Bard s most bloody murders
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. Before she can reveal it to Kate, the Globe is burned to the ground and Roz is found dead murdered in the strange 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 solve a tantalizing string of clues hidden in the words of Shakespeare, which may unlock one of history s greatest secrets. But Kate is not alone in this hunt, and the buried truth threatens to come at the ultimate cost."
