Shakespearean Whodunnits
Edited by Michael (Mike) Ashley.
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", read more about the plot here.

Book Cover of Here Comes the Sun

Quote from Here Comes the Sun

The girl curtseyed again and danced off down the hill, leaving Bjorn alone at last with the trees, the birds, the squirrels and his ingrowing toenail. For a while he stood and looked aimlessy about him, until his eye lit on one tree that he recognized. It was a tall, ancient oak and he remembered it well; he had climbed it as a boy, and his grandfather had often lifted him up into its branches, pointing out to him all the marvellous things he could see. How wonderful it is, his grandfather used to say, to sit in a high tree and look out over all kingdoms of the world, as if one were God's own eyes!
  Bjorn braced his feet, grinned, and set about cutting it down.
(Tom Holt, "Here Comes the Sun")
