William Shakespeare, Crime Scene Cleaner.
By F J McQueen. Urbane Publications, 2016.

Out now in paperback.

The best, most entertaining, gloriously funny, crazy, inventive, heart-warming, and well-written book, I have read for a long, long time.

Highly recommended.

William Shakespeare, but not as you know him: we meet him first as junior doctor, a whistle-blower on the health system’s use of divination in medicine.
His new career as crime-scene cleaner finds in strange yet familiar territory: two teens dead in a crypt, and a mysterious friar; a Scottish noble wife and husband in a grand house, surrounded by a strange forest…. The crimes begin to fill his order-book.
Who is the perpetrator?
We blend Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, modern fantasy, and the darkest of dark humour (South Park in the background).

And then, when what the three oracles in the hospital cupboard said starts to come true….What if you could clean so deep, if you could clean the whole world?What would that world be?

So, not a straight genre-novel, then?
Nope, but probably the most inventive, subversive fiction you’ll ever read.

WARNING: Contains big concept story-line, and huge metaphors.
