The Folger Shakespeare Library is the world's largest repository of Shakespeareana and English Renaissance books, manuscripts, and objects d'art. Nobody alive knows the library better than Special Police Officer Lt. Norman Blalock; he's been guarding it for 25 years. That's why he is the perfect candidate to pull off an inside job and heist from the library's underground bank vault a priceless artifact that can rock the foundation of English literature.

Fast action and a mix of fact and fiction

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

To some friends, yes. It is a great mix of fact and fiction and tells a fast-moving, but far-reaching story. Well-written and the perfect length for a quick summer read.
