The Dirty Duck is a pub in Shakespeare's beloved Stratford, and in this pub Miss Gwendolyn Bracegirdle of Sarasota, Florida, fresh from a performance of 'As You Like It,' takes her last drink. A few minutes later, just behind the Church of the Holy Trinity, she is dead, her throat slashed ear to ear, the only clue: two lines from an unknown poem printed across a theater program. The razor-happy murderer, it seems, is stalking a group of rich American tourists. And Superintendent Jury, just passing through Stratford for a glimpse of the intriguing Lady Kennington, instead takes a crash course in the bloodier side of Elizabethan verse."--Publisher description.
