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
Simon Hawke has been the author of two successful SF/F series (Time Wars and The Wizard of 4th Street), a New York Times bestselling Star Trek novel, and several books for TSR in the "Dark Sun" and "Birthright" settings. Much Ado About Murder is his third Shakespeare and Smythe mystery. He currently lives in Greensboro, North Carolina.
