“It maketh me turnest over in my grave.”
“Who’s To Blame not only takes us on a romp through Shakespeare’s plays, but down hilarious back alleys and side doors we haven’t visited before. Williams’s intuitive comic timing tells us that he understands all the literary clichés—and how to turn them cheerfully upside down.”
—Caroline Ferdinandsen, Author of The Forecast
SherChristispeare is the finest sleuth in sixteenth-century England, but when he’s ordered to investigate the suspicious deaths of Prince Hamlet and his family in Denmark and then the Montagues and Capulets of Fair Verona, he uncovers an intriguing mystery of literary revisionist proportions. The wily and witty detective and his bungling sidekick Pancho embark on two rollicking adventures where there is no shortage of wine, women, and words. Using old school cunning and state-of-the-art forensics, the pair stops at nothing to solve two of literature’s most famous tragedies and bring the guilty parties to justice. Author Jeffery Williams creates a wacky and winsome spoof/sequel/pastiche/whodunit that leaves no Shakespearean line or scene unparodied.
Take a fresh angle on two of Shakespeare’s greatest works, Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet, and enter the world of SherChristispeare and Pancho as they find out Who’s to Blame.
