Will Shakespeare's labors be won or lost forever? Those are the stakes in this mystery about murders committed during the hunt for a forgotten Shakespeare play, LOVE'S LABOURS WON, once part of John Harvard's original library. As antiquarian book dealer Peter Fallon unravels the puzzle, the story weaves back 400 years to reveal the history of Harvard, New England, and the powerful Wedge family. Paul Boehmer narrates with a rich blend of New England accents and a low-key sense of drama that highlights history and drama in flashbacks. The plot takes substantially more than the Bard's typical two hours on the stage, but listeners will find it a winning investment of time. J.A.S.
