Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Okay, this is straight down The Da Vinci Code territory but sans religion. Instead it takes murders echoing Shakespeare’s plots as its contemporary adventure, and revelations from his life as its intriguing historical background. It is well-written, compulsive page-turning stuff and you really don’t have to be a Shakespeare buff to appreciate it. Incidentally, if you are looking it up elsewhere then it is called Interred With Their Bones in its American edition.

Comparison: Dan Brown, Kate Mosse, Steve Berry.

Synopsis

The Shakespeare Secret by J L Carrell

A modern serial killer - hunting an ancient secret.

A woman is left to die as the rebuilt Globe theatre burns. Another woman is drowned like Ophelia, skirts swirling in the water. A professor has his throat slashed open on the steps of Washington’s Capitol building.

A deadly serial killer is on the loose, modelling his murders on Shakespeare’s plays. But why is he killing? And how can he be stopped?

A gripping, shocking page turner, The Shakespeare Secret masterfully combines modern murder and startling true revelations from the life of Shakespeare. It has been acclaimed as one of the most compulsively readable thrillers of recent years.
