J.W. Jackson is a former Boston cop out on disability. He retires to a nice quiet life of fishing and nude sunbathing on Martha's Vineyard. In this second book in the installment J.W. gets mixed up in some visiting scholars who are about to publish a paper on a missing Shakespeare play written about King Arthur. When one of the scholars turns up dead under suspicious circumstances, J.W. looks into the murder. Warning these books makes you hungry, a guy who bakes his own bread and smokes bluefish. Definitely like J.W. enough to continue the series.
