Shakespeare buffs take note! This wonderfully written novel of intrigue and suspense is sure to keep you turning the pages to find out what happens next. The story revolves around characters both past and present that become, either by design or by circumstance, deeply involved in discovering the location of a lost Shakespeare manuscript. Russian gangsters, English spies, and high profile lawyers all come to life in this smart and articulate novel by a local northwest author.

What started out as an intriguing topic, disintegrated into a contrived ramble.

I'm confused. I think I need to read this one again.

I really enjoyed it...BUT...found the 3 different authors confusing and literally lost the plot at the end.

While I didn't want to put it down I fell asleep reading it 4 nights in a row..very unusual

so while I really enjoyed it, not sure I can recommend it!
