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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Plot twists worthy of The Da Vinci Code dominate this agile first novel from Carrell...this spirited and action-packed novel delivers constant excitement. - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"a gripping page-turner, an erudite account of contemporary Bard scholarship and the plays and poems that made Mr Shakespeare, whoever he was, the man he is today. Perfect" Daily Express - “a hide-and-seek chase of murder and mayhem...Carrell omits [Dan Brown’s] ridiculous howlers but follows his penchant for twists, turns and incessant violence” The Times

"It's the Da Vinci Code on steroids and would be banned if it were an athlete... An intelligent, thought-provoking, highly readable and extremely fast-paced whodunit spanning four centuries" Daily Sport - “her extensive research is both accurate and impressive” RTE Guide

“The Shakespeare Secret”

I do agree about the comment someone made that this had the feel of a first draft, but other than that I absolutely loved it. The narrative was very fast-paced, and someone I recommended it to who knew next to nothing... More
