Sometimes a book isn't done justice by its audio book version. This is usually when the book is read by its author. (The late Madeleine L'Engle is an exception, but she had a theatrical background.) This is the first audio book I've encountered which seems to be salvaged by its reader which, in this case, is the dark-brown-voiced Tony Jay, former member of the Royal Shakespeare Company and, according to the blurb, heard in Disney parks worldwide.

A Great mystery built around one of history's most famous writers.in this fast paced and detailed novel William Shakespeare fears for his life as one mysterious "accedent" after another tries to kill him. all of these "Accedents" culminate in murder. Not Shakespeare's murder, he's just the guy that gets arrested for it. Now The Bard of Avon is on a desperate flight not just to clear his name but to save his family from his evil stalker.
I listened to the audiobook from the library. This one was okay. William Shakespeare has been accused of murder, and chaos abounds as he escapes in disguise, only to reappear in order to find out who set him up and why. Time's Fool is told in first person, from the Bard's own point of view. Meh.
I found this book a little difficult to get into, but once I managed to get through the first 30 pages, I found it to be a rather interesting story of Shakespeare's supposed love for his dark mistress.
Another must-read for Shakespeare fans. This one is a clever murder mystery involving the Dark Lady from Shakespeare's sonnets. Very entertaining.
