Synopsis : "Nothing ever happens in Stratford, " insisted Superintendent Richard Jury of Scotland Yard. Unfortunately, he was wrong. Besides the stage murders commited nightly at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, a real one had been performed not far from the Dirty Duck, a popular pub. The victim had been a member of an exclusive group too: Those rare homicidal maniacs compelled to leave an intentional clue - in this case, a fragment of Elizabethan verse.
Synopsis: The only clues to a murder are two lines from a poem, and Inspector Jury musttake a crash course in the bloodier side of Elizabethan verse.
