Review: Interred With Their Bones, by Jennifer Lee Carrell

interredThis novel has a split personality crisis. It is a murder mystery crossed with The Da Vinci Code crossed with a Shakespearean criticism tome. I think it would have been better with the Shakespearean puzzle but without the murders. The victims are good friends of our heroine but she has an “Oh well, too bad for them” attitude that I found off-putting. There is a lot of interesting information about Shakespeare and his times but the characters tend to run on in too great detail at the drop of a hat–or gun or knife–about Elizabethan theater, historical personages or contenders for the real author of Shakespeare’s plays. That said, I did enjoy the book on CD version. The narrator, Kathleen McNenny, gave each character his or her own voice and appropriate personality.

RATING: * * * A good read
