A serial killer is leaving a rather horrible trail of messy murders across London and William Shakespeare, crime scene cleaner, is on his tail, armed with a mop, determination and an inquiring mind. After cleaning the room in which his half-brother, Kit Marlow, had been knifed to death, Shakespeare starts up his own crime scene cleaning business, Incarnadine, picking up know-how from the net and on the job.
Following a series of clues gleaned from other crime scenes, Shakespeare is soon piecing together suspect profiles and likely modus operandi. Out Damned Spot! has our hero cleaning up after every crime committed in the works of William Shakespeare but given contemporary settings. The masterminds behind the actual crimes are based on the writers whose stories Shakespeare ‘stole’……needless to say it’s a comedy crime thriller!
F.J.McQueen lives on the edge of the Peak District with her husband, also a writer, and a great number of books. She has seven pigeons, a formidable grand-dame of a crow and a pair of highly theatrical, hissy-fitting bantam hens. Besides an extreme obsession with books and writing, she has a great interest in mentalism (illusionist, mind-reading stage magic), botany, death metal and Japanese noise music, and loves to mosh in the privacy of her own room. She’s also an inventor, cartoonist, lyricist, rotten rapper, librettist, comedy performer and mother of a gladsome son who, unsurprisingly, is also a writer with his own mountain of books.
