Kurzbeschreibung

Who was William Shakespeare?

An enigmatic monument points to a lost poem by a great conspirator.
An ancient mystery explodes across modern London.
A desperate race to prevent the Truth from being buried forever.

“Pilgrim, stand you on king’s mound for a sign…”

April, 2004. Alaric “Rick” Campbell, an American Rhodes Scholar in World History at Oxford University is handed an invitation to the Shakespeare Birthday Festival at Stratford-Upon-Avon. He imagines spending a boring weekend glorifying the one-time actor and merchant. But when Rick stumbles across the murdered body of one of the world’s experts on the life and works of William Shakespeare, he discovers that the murdered man left behind a clue that calls into question the very identity of the Author of the plays. Aided by the upcoming playwright Elizabeth McAleth, a former pupil of the murdered man, Rick finds himself wanted by the police for the very murder he is trying to solve. The pair flee to London, where they receive further assistance from a dissident scholar trumpeting the candidacy of Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford. Following the murdered man’s last clue leads them first to the Shakespeare Monument in Poets’ Corner of Westminster Abbey. From there the trio delves into the vast holdings of the British Library, where the forgotten voice of a long-dead poet sends them racing across London on a trail that has remained hidden for 250 years. They will visit great castles, churches, and playhouses, where the clues have lain in plain sight, for those prepared to see the Truth. Along the way, their steps will be hounded by a strange medley of antagonists. If they succeed in following the signs laid down centuries ago, an explosive truth may come to light. A Truth that could shake England to its very core… and finally expose the reason for The Oxford Deception.

A taut thriller in the mold of Angels & Demons, THE OXFORD DECEPTION is a tapestry of veiled histories and enigmatic codes that will forever change how you think about the plays of William Shakespeare and their True Author.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fun Romp Through Historical London 22. Dezember 2011
Von Jon Kalb - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Our hero is a historian that is following literary clues taking him across London in search of evidence that will settle the Authorship question and solve a murder.

The debt to Don Brown is pretty evident here, but with an Authorship twist. The story is a little predictable and the ebook has some typos, but if you are up for some fun with conspiracy theories, a murder and a touch of literary history while touring historic London, then you've found the right book.

Neither Brown nor the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust have much to fear from this volume, but English history buffs and Oxford fans will have fun playing along.

The Author's Note at the end of the book which clarifies what is fact and what is artistic license is both fun to read and thought provoking.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great fun plus real history 17. Mai 2012
Von Casey Dorman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
As a mystery author and an interested observer of the debate about the true identity of the man who wrote the plays attributed to Shakespeare, I was thoroughly entertained by The Oxford Deception. Yes, it is in the tradition of Dan Brown, but it does fully as well as some of his works, such as The Lost Symbol, which I recently read. And for any student of English history, the book is a real treat. The author takes pains to detail various odd and not so odd vagaries of British history and, particularly the history associated with various London or near London monuments and sites that can still be visited. I found the characters likeable. What most keeps the reader going is the solution of a series of puzzles as the hero and heroine track down the truth about the authorship of the plays... and one more secret, which I will not tell, as that will spoil the story for the reader. For anyone who wants to learn about the challenge to the identity of Shakespeare, or simply wants to be entertained, this is a really fun book to read. I would hope that a publisher might take up the book and put it out as a hardbound, although I loved being able to read it for a bargain price on my Kindle.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An interesting and fun historical journey through modern London -- Recommended for anyone with a slight interest in history 1. Januar 2013
Von kpoland - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Janacek's first work takes place in modern London, and is heavily influenced by the Dan Brown books. A little overwhelming at first, The Oxford Deception quickly picks up pace, and keeps that pace throughout the book. A tough feat for a new author. Getting acquainted with the multiple sides of this literary debate was a little tough, but after the first couple chapters I could pick out the Oxfordians from the Stratford-Upon-Avoners and the beliefs of some of the minor parties too. Not being too interested or knowledgable about the History of Shakespeare or of London, I was pleasantly surprised to have learned what feels like a good bit of London history. From it's monarchs, to some of its great artists and thinkers. And even more surprising was that it kept me reading. Janacek makes history fun and yet he doesn't dumb it down. Having never been to London myself, I was grateful for the authors attention to detail in describing some of these essential London landmarks. It made reading the book a rewarding experience, by allowing the reader to effortlessly escape into the quest of Rick Campbell.

It's a book full of interesting facts, world history, good characters, and a very fun plot. I'm excited to read his other two novels, and I recommend this book for all interested ever so slightly in history, London, the authorship controversy, or Shakespeare himself.
4.0 von 5 Sternen The Oxford Deception. 25. April 2014
Von Pamela A. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Being one who leans toward De Vere as the playwright/poet of the man known as Wm. Shakespeare this little book gave me some very interesting areas to research. I'm all for Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford, as the original author of these beautiful and timeless plays and sonnets.
2.0 von 5 Sternen LIght Reading for those Oxfordians such as I 19. Dezember 2013
Von Douglas R. Walker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Loosely based on the theory that William Shakespeare's work
can be attributed to others, in this case the 17th Earle, this suspense thriller is worth you time between more scholarly tomes.
