Starring Shakespearean detectives Falstaff, Mark Antony, and Orlando, here are twenty new, specially commissioned stories by Steve Lockley, Mary Reed, Steven Saylor, Edward D. Hoch, Peter Crowther, Kim Newman, and many more. The dire deeds in Shakespeare's plays prompt investigations, for instance, into Romeo and Juliet's deaths, Falstaff's setup in The Merry Wives of Windsor, and Cleopatra's suicide -- "Murder most foul", as the Bard put it.
