What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“I see the book becoming – in addition to a fine read in its own right – an excellent source for scholars interested in pursuing some of the larger ideas Professor Hopkins raises, particularly those touching on how crime fiction navigates Shakespeare's cultural value. The prose is clear and fluid. A much-needed book.” (Andrew Hartley, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, USA)
