Embark on a literary adventure with bookworm Elliot Todd in Lionel Ward’s gripping Elliot Todd Mysteries series.

In The Shakespeare Thief, Elliot’s dream of running a bookshop in a quaint country town takes a dark turn when the death of a Shakespeare expert sets off a chain of intrigue. Tim Pears hails it as “a real page-turner,” while Alexander Waugh praises its “lively characters and rollicking plot.”

As the owner of Brendon Books and organizer of the Taunton Literary Festival, Lionel brings his experience to crafting these captivating crime thrillers. Don’t miss this chance to unravel the mysteries of writing this series with the author.
