The Second Mrs. Watson is back on the case! This time the intrepid Amelia Watson finds herself in Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, seeking to help the sister of a lifelong friend with a family crisis. Before long, she, her trouble-prone chum Harry Benbow, and new acquaintance—a neophyte Canadian detective—all become enmeshed in a web of intrigue centering on shocking evidence proclaiming that Queen Elizabeth I was William Shakespeare! The adventure begins with the murder of an American Shakespearean scholar in London, and travels all the way to William Shakespeare’s grave in an ancient church on the banks of the gently-flowing Avon. In the process, Amelia is forced to admit that she may finally have taken on a case that is too puzzling—and too deadly—for her to solve; and worse, that she may become the next victim of the ruthless murderer that is stalking Stratford.
