Full of tension and intrigue, this is a real page-turner. The Shakespeare manuscript conspiracy theory had me hooked and I was fascinated by the tracing of a book’s historical provenance. Expect full drama, romance and a thriller in the style of Dan Brown.
Filling the margins of every page of the ‘Pandosto’ he now held, was that same brown ink, those same loops and lines, that same sloping text. And both the handwriting and the content of the marginalia gave every indication, under Peter’s admittedly cursory examination, that it had come from the pen of William Shakespeare. Most astounding of all was what was written on the front endpaper.
