A long-lost work of Shakespeare, newly found.
A killer who stages the Bard’s extravagant murders as flesh-and-blood realities.
A desperate race to find literary gold, and just to stay alive. . . .

On the eve of the Globe’s production of Hamlet , Shakespeare scholar and theater director Kate Stanley’s eccentric mentor Rosalind Howard gives her a mysterious box, claiming to have made a groundbreaking discovery. But before she can reveal it to Kate, the Globe burns to the ground and Roz is found dead . . . murdered precisely in the manner of Hamlet’s father. Inside the box Kate finds the first piece in a Shakespearean puzzle, setting her on a deadly, high-stakes treasure hunt.

From London to Harvard to the American West, Kate races to evade a killer and decipher a tantalizing string of clues, hidden in the words of Shakespeare, that may unlock literary history’s greatest secret. At once suspenseful and elegantly written, Interred with Their Bones is poised to become the next bestselling literary adventure in the tradition of The Thirteenth Tale and The Historian .

So bad I didn't even finish it. I wanted to love it so much!

The audio was a good recording. The reader kept pace well and distinguished the various voices.
The mystery about Shakespeare could be interesting in another story. The discussion has been going on for ages. Not that I follow it but I enjoy Shakespeare and it's an interesting theory (I'm pro Shakespeare).
There....I've said something nice about this book.
I did not like this story, the main character, he overuse of flowery similies (""Smoke swept down the side of the building like luxurious tresses of hair") or the clumsy, obvious and cliched actions. The heroine was a dumb kind of headstrong. She caused danger to herself and others by her actions.
Needless to say, I won't be continuing with the series.

Loved it. I love Shakespear so putting it in this real life twist was awesome. But, what did Sir Henry have against Roz? Did they have some sort of bad history or something?
