Everyone has heard of plays like "Macbeth" and "A Midsummer Night's Dream". But why do we know so little about the man who wrote them? Who exactly was William Shakespeare from Stratford-upon-Avon, and why do so many people believe that he was not the person he seemed to be? This book is an exciting detective story, which goes back over 400 years to the dramatic events of the reign of Queen Elizabeth I and explores the way that a brillian and ambitious young man was caught up in a violent world of murder, revenge and treason.
