"Shakespearean Whodunnits" (1997)
ISBN: 1-85487-945-6 (pb)(UK)
ISBN: 0-78670-482-9 (pb)(US)

Crimes-a-plenty tumble out of Shakespeare's plays. Suppose, for instance,
that Friar Lawrence isn't available to explain the tragedy of Romeo and
Juliet, and that Capulet or Montague engages someone to investigate their
deaths? How about King Lear: he is convinced that Cordelia is alive at
the end of the play. Is the corpse Cordelia or someone else? What has
happened? How did Falstaff really die in "Henry V" and who was behind his
humiliation in "The Merry Wives of Windsor"? Did Cleopatra really commit
suicide, or was it a set-up? Who, exactly, is the sinister visitor
conjured up by Caliban in "The Tempest"? In their ingenious tales, the
likes of Falstaff and Hamlet, as well as the Bard himself, are set in hot
pursuit of fresh clues and new solutions to some of the bloodiest plots
and nastiest deeds hidden in Shakepeare's plays. Tom Holt appears with
the story "Cinna the Poet".
