The audio was a good recording. The reader kept pace well and distinguished the various voices.
The mystery about Shakespeare could be interesting in another story. The discussion has been going on for ages. Not that I follow it but I enjoy Shakespeare and it's an interesting theory (I'm pro Shakespeare).
There....I've said something nice about this book.
I did not like this story, the main character, he overuse of flowery similies (""Smoke swept down the side of the building like luxurious tresses of hair") or the clumsy, obvious and cliched actions. The heroine was a dumb kind of headstrong. She caused danger to herself and others by her actions.
Needless to say, I won't be continuing with the series.
