Publisher's Summary

You heard it here first: The unabridged edition of The Shakespeare Secret is only available as a download.

A modern serial killer - hunting an ancient secret. A woman is left to die as the rebuilt Globe theatre burns. Another woman is drowned like Ophelia, skirts swirling in the water. A professor has his throat slashed open on the steps of Washington's Capitol building.

A deadly serial killer is on the loose, modelling his murders on Shakespeare's plays. But why is he killing? And how can he be stopped?

A gripping, shocking page turner, The Shakespeare Secret masterfully combines modern murder and startling true revelations from the life of Shakespeare. It has been acclaimed as one of the most compulsively readable thrillers of recent years.

Boring and Wordy

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

People who don't read Agatha Christie and know what a good murder story is all about.

What was most disappointing about J L Carrell’s story?

There were too many words…..she went on and on. I found the plot did not grab me and was all over the place. The author obviously does not know that a good thriller is a fast thriller. I actually just wanted to finish the book and be done with it. Very disappointing as the premise sounded exciting.

What didn’t you like about uncredited’s performance?

Her voices were irritating.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment, boredom and frustration.

Any additional comments?

I would not read the sequel.

The Da Vinci Code with Shakespeare

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I recommend this audiobook to anyone that enjoys a good thriller and adventure story

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot keeps you on your seat for sure as you never know who it is that is after the main character, Kate. The people that help her along the way change regularly and though she trusts them half the time she shouldn't

Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I never heard a book by the narrator before and she did a good job on this one

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, it is and it was hard stopping it because I always wanted to know where Kate was going to and what mess she was getting herself into.

Any additional comments?

This is a very enjoyable listen and I hope that J.L Carrell's next is done in audio format as I have read that one and it was really good read so I would love to listen to it as well.
