“This ripping sequel to 'Interred With Their Bones' sends intrepid Shakespeare scholar Kate Stanley to Scotland on another Bard-haunted hunt: someone has found the lost original of 'Macbeth,' someone else has killed for it, and everyone in the stolen manuscript's path fears its curse. Witchcraft, history, legends, and modern-day literary sleuthing all play their parts in this smart, cliff-hung thrill ride.”

Kate Stanley returns in this thrilling follow-up to the "New York Times" bestselling "Interred with Their Bones."

Jennifer Lee Carrell's fiction debut, "Interred with Their Bones," was greeted by both fantastic reviews and stellar sales. Already a bestseller in the U.K., Haunt Me Still marks the much-anticipated return of Kate Stanley, Shakespearean scholar and theater director. This time, Kate becomes embroiled in a murder surrounding "Macbeth," the Bard's famously cursed play. As Kate and company begin rehearsals at the foot of Scotland's Dunsinnan Hill, she discovers a local woman dead in circumstances that suggest ancient pagan sacrifice. Marked as both suspect and future victim, Kate undertakes a desperate race to find a dangerous, alternate version of "Macbeth"-reputed to be Shakespeare's darkest secret.
