I'm willing to bet that, then and now, many readers of the 'golden age' 
of English detective fiction from the '20s onwards don't spot how often 
Shakespeare is pillaged for thriller/ mystery titles: Agatha Christie 
and Ngaio Marsh come immediately to mind, but without their 
back-catalogues to hand I can't offer any examples offhand other than 
'Light Thickens'.
