We gave it a B

Directing Hamlet at London’s Globe Theatre, Kate Stanley gets swept up in a race against assorted scholarly evildoers to crack a centuries-old mystery involving Shakespeare, Cervantes, and an Arizona bat cave in Interred With Their Bones.

Grisliest Death
A librarian’s throat is slashed (it gapes ”like a second slack mouth just above his bow tie”).

Bottom Line
Jennifer Lee Carrell’s brisk, byzantine novel owes debts to The Da Vinci Code and Possession, without quite measuring up to either. B
