Dead as a Doornail, by Charlaine Harris, copyright 2005 by Charlaine Harris Schulz; Ace/The Berkley Publishing Group/Penguin Group (USA) Inc., May 2005. I like Harris and Hamilton the best of the books I've read in this genre. Hamilton is perhaps a little more intense, but Harris is perhaps a little more moving. I'll have to check out Harris's Shakespeare novels, set in rural Arkansas, and her new series starting with Grave Sight.
Shakespeare's Landlord, by Charlaine Harris, copyright 1996; Dell/Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Inc., August 1997. Ok, it's later, and I have checked out Harris's Shakespeare series, and so far it is good.
