The big book at the 2005 Frankfurt Book Fair-with rights now sold in seventeen countries and counting-Jennifer Lee Carrell's Shakespearean thriller Interred with Their Bones is the most eagerly anticipated debut thriller of 2007.
From a reader's review:
The synopsis for the book is printed for all to see and needs little addition from me. Suffice to say that the plot of the book revolves around a modern day serial killer re-enacting some of Shakespeare's finest scenes. But why is he killing and why in such a grotesque and unique fashion? Is there is a method in his madness? and how can he be stopped?
The book is well written and combines modern day murders and true revelations from the life of Shakespeare himself. An interest in the bard may help some with the enjoyment of the book, but it is by no means compulsory. The book judging by other reviews may not be everybody's cup of tea but I found it an enjoyable read. It is however one of those books where you need to give it your full attention and keep your concentration, not as sometimes happens with me, one eye on the book the other on the television.

: Книга подходит как для ценителей Шекспира, так и для поклонников творчества Дэна Брауна, так как написана явно под влиянием оного. Интересный триллер, в котором переплетаются эпоха Шекспира и современность.
