Jennifer Lee Carrell holds a P. in English and American literature from Harvard University and is the author of The Speckled Monster: A Historical Tale of Battling Smallpox and the novel Interred with Their Bones.

She lives in Tucson, Arizona.

Jennifer Lee Carrell’s highly acclaimed debut novel is a brilliant, breathlessly paced literary adventure. Thinking about whether writing Interred with Their Bones gave me a different relationship with the works of Shakespeare than directing them did-I think I’d have to turn that question inside out. The action begins on the eve of the Globe’s production of Hamlet when Shakespeare scholar and theater director Kate Stanley’s eccentric mentor Rosalind Howard gives her a mysterious box, claiming to have made a groundbreaking discovery. Writing the novel didn’t rearrange my experience of the plays so much as directing the plays taught me how to write a novel.

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER“A feverishly paced action adventure” (The New York Times) about a long-lost Shakespeare work and a killer who reenacts the Bard’s most bloody murders On the eve of the Globe’s production of Hamlet, Shakespeare scholar and theater director Kate Stanley’s eccentric mentor Rosalind Howard gives her a mysterious box, claiming to have made a groundbreaking discovery. Before she can reveal it to Kate, the Globe is burned to the ground and Roz is found dead—murdered in the strange manner of Hamlet’s father. Inside the box, Kate finds the first piece in a Shakespearean puzzle, setting her on a deadly, high-stakes treasure hunt. From London to Harvard to the American West, Kate races to evade a killer and solve a tantalizing string of clues hidden in the words of Shakespeare, which may unlock one of history’s greatest secrets. But Kate is not alone in this hunt, and the buried truth threatens to come at the ultimate cost.

Many of the reviews of this book say that it's short on plot and long on history, but really the action moves along at a very fast pace as the lead character and her allies investigate the murder mystery and attempt to find a long-lost Shakespeare play as well as the identity of Shakespeare himself. For anyone who likes historical mysteries, this will be a great read. If you love Shakespeare, you'll also love learning more about him and the different theories as to who he was. (I favor the Stratford theory myself: the simplest explanation is usually the correct one, and it's snobbery to think that a middle class man couldn't also have been a genius. Anyone is capable of educating himself just by reading and listening to those that he comes into contact with.) I came away eager to try the second book in the series and almost wanting to read "Don Quixote" because you'll learn quite a lot about Cervantes and his hero as you read or listen to this wonderful novel.

On the other hand, when the audio narration started, I was worried that I wouldn't make it through because the narrator, Kathleen McNenny, did a horrible job with the British accents. Even to an American ear, she didn't sound at all like any British speaker that I ever heard. Once I was past Disc One, however, the action moved to the United States, and almost all the characters were Americans. For that part of the book, McNenny was a fine choice. She did make some of the mistakes that are common with all but the best audiobook narrators (suprasegmental choices that don't quite work), but all in all, she did a fine job with voice characterizations and pacing, etc. If I was surprised at how bad she was at British accents, I was horrified when she came to the two Mexican-American characters, especially Mr. Jimenez. He didn't sound like any Mexican-American that I ever heard, and I live in the Western United States and teach ESL. His accent was seriously offensive to someone who isn't Latino; I can't even imagine what Latinos would think. Ms. McNenny needs to stay away from books where she has to use accents. Stick to the American voices, really! I'm glad that book two in the series has a different--and more experienced--narrator. I'm looking forward to it.
I resented having to put this book down to eat, do necessary chores and to sleep. It starts with a fire at the Globe Theatre on the same day and date that it originally burned after which Kate Stanley's estranged mentor is found dead in Kate's office after leaving her a package and telling Kate that she'd found something. Once that horse's out of the barn it becomes an international search for clues as to what her mentor had found proof of, who killed her mentor, who was Shakespeare, and try not to get killed while she's going about it. I just hope there was some connivance between Ben Pearl and Inspector Sinclair otherwise the way they slipped though international security is worrisome. A fast and enjoyable read.
the auther created a convoluted story around her knowledge of Shakespeare which was extensive & interesting but the story was a mess
It had to happen. There are so many blanks and mysteries in Shakespeare's life, it was ripe for the Da Vinci Code treatment. (In Australia, where I live, this book is being sold under the title "The Shakespeare Secret"). And to give the author credit, Jennifer Lee Carrell has at least a plausible set of facts as the kernel of her mystery, unlike another author I could name. Unfortunately the fictional story is not as plausible, requiring many leaps of faith to follow the leaps and bounds of the protagonist, theatre director Kate Stanley, who has somehow graduated from being a research student in the USA to directing movie stars and theatre legends in a production of Hamlet at London's Globe Theatre.

The production is interrupted by the appearance of Kate's old mentor, Rosalind Howard, with a mysterious box and the promise of an adventure. This is rapidly followed by a murder, a fire at the Globe, an attack on Kate by a mysterious assailant with a sword and the appearance of a James Bond look alike who takes on the role of Kate's protector. The promised adventure is a Shakespearean prize missing for centuries. Kate becomes so obsessed with this that she pursues it regardless of the deaths of various innocent people who get in the way, which rather made me lose sympathy for her.

Nevertheless there is some interesting background about Shakespeare's life and times and his missing plays, as well as the numerous theories about who Shakespeare really was (or were, in case you favour a joint enterprise). The intellectual teases kept me reading rather than the plot or characters, who are all fairly improbable. For a more enjoyable and better written literary mystery about Shakespeare, I recommend Sarah Smith's Chasing Shakespeares: A Novel.
I just finished the book this morning. I didn't really like it, but gave it 3 stars because I was able to finish it. I couldn't keep up with the convoluted clues and historical characters. I decided it didn't matter if I understood who was writing to whom or how it all connected to who wrote Shakespeare. The characters Ben and Matthew seemed interchangeable at times. He's good; no, he's bad; no, he's good. Whatever. Kate was brittle and two-dimensional. Running from the cops was stupid. None of the flashbacks really made any sense. I was expecting some huge revelation and nothing really emerged. The only part of the story I kinda enjoyed was how the priest and the conquistadors ended up dying in the cave with the manuscript. But Kate, et al. crawling on their bellies through a tunnel the size of a chimney with tiny flashlights for half a mile with no idea what lay ahead? Ridiculous.
