Kathleen McNenny narrates this action-filled mystery about long-lost Shakespeare manuscripts in an able and entertaining manner. Admittedly, the action is farfetched, but McNenny's smooth voice and upbeat pacing remind us it's also lots of fun. When American Shakespeare scholar Kate Stanley receives a mysterious box from a friend who is soon murdered, she sets off to solve the mystery and the crime. McNenny portrays Kate with the right mix of academic naïveté and breathless enthusiasm. She has fun with a range of British accents and is particularly skilled at creating believable male characters, from a seductive private detective to a posh church official.
