I was disappointed in "A Mystery of Errors." The concept was promising,
but the execution was lacking. There was not much there.

Just my two cents.

On Shakespeare in mystery novels, you might find some helpful references
in the following:

Madge Mitton, '"Murder Most Foul": Shakespeare in the Detective Novel',
in R.S. White, Charles Edelman and Christopher Wortham (eds.),
_Shakespeare: Readers, Audiences, Players_ (Nedlands: University of
Western Australia Press, 1998), pp. 47-55.

I'm sure I have seen other secondary literature on this genre. I think
that Gary Taylor's _Reinventing Shakespeare_ might include some
information.

Cheers,
Douglas McQueen-Thomson
