If you are looking for a fast paced thriller built around the mystery of William Shakespeare, try Interred with Their Bones.
Kate Stanley, once a rising star in Shakespearian academic circles, looks now to the theatre world with a new staging of Hamlet at London’s Globe Theatre. In the midst of the theater chaos Rosalind Howard, Kate's former mentor in the academic world, makes a sudden appearance at a rehearsal. Rosalind needs Kate's help in finding something that will astound the world. Before Kate can find out more, Roz is found murdered backstage and the method used is similar to the death of Hamlet’s father.
Aided by three very different men, all of whom seem to have their own reasons for helping, Kate must figure out who to trust. More deaths follow, all with links to Shakespeare’s plays, as Kate races from London to Spain to the United States following clues to a possible lost play, and even more shattering, evidence as to who really wrote the plays.
I really liked the heroine, who while smart and attractive, also has her own insecurities but didn’t let them stop her. Jennifer Lee Carrell’s book is a page turner with a number of surprises at the end.
