Fledgling playwright Will Shakespeare and Symington Smythe, ostler and would-be thespian, and are now firmly ensconced in their theater company . . . But due to the plague, all of London's theaters have been closed, its players now broke, forcing our intrepid duo to seek employment in other lines of work--Smythe smithing and Will poeting.
Then a murder rocks all of London.

Shakespeare and Smythe decide to solve the crime, but they must rely on their wits to survive both the conspiriacies and the cutthroat business of Elizabethan theater

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Shakespeare & Smythe

"In the ebullient spirit of the hit movie Shakespeare in Love, young William Shakespeare takes center stage as an aspiring playwright and sleuth in this lighthearted historical. . . . Literary gold." --Publishers Weekly on The Slaying of the Shrew

"Hawke has a sure hand, an eye for detail and character, and he mixes historical fact and fiction in an altogether delightful manner. This has the makings of an excellent series." --Booklist

"Warring theater companies, familial chicanery, villains by the yard, and Will and Tuck as bumbling heroes--it all provides a good-natured romp for audiences who wish they'd make a sequel to Shakespeare in Love." --Kirkus Reviews on The Slaying of the Shrew
" A word to the wise: A Mystery of Errors is a historical hoot. Hawke's plot is suitably complicated, the period touches are convincing, and the wit is contagious. A worthy debut for the Bard as a detective!" --Peter J. Heck, author of Death on the Mississippi and other Mark Twain Mysteries
