Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Crimes a-plenty tumble out of Shakespeare's plays, and if not everyone in the play knows what is going on, they can easily become whodunnits. Suppose, for example, that there were suspicions about the real cause of the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, or that King Lear's madness was not as once believed. What then?

This completely original and wonderfully entertaining collection features more than twenty superb whodunnits based on and around favourite characters from Shakespeare's plays, among them King Lear, Hamlet, Falstaff, Shylock, Coriolanus, Macbeth, Mistress Quickly and Puck. All the stories are new and specially written for this collection, and all are by masters of historical mystery, such as
Stephen Baxter, on what became a Midsummer Night's Nightmare
Martin Edwards, and the real madness of King Lear
Margaret Frazer reveals a shocking scandal behind Richard II's betrayal
Susanna Gregory, and Hotspur's last stand
Edward D. Hoch turns the three witches into bewitching sleuths
Patricia McKillip, Romeo and Juliet, and an extraordinary new affair
Amy Myers, on the question that sets all Rome aflame: who killed Mamillius?
