The first Alan Wall novel that I read was 'The Lightning Cage'. That was very good but I feel this is even better. Obviously an author to add to my 'must read' list. ( )

A story-within-a-story, I enjoyed this mystery book about a literary scholar who gets interested in the question of whether or not William Shakespeare actually wrote the work which has been attributed to him. A good read, although I didn't find the ending particularly satisfying. ( )
