An electrifying modern language reimagining of Shakespeare’s classic tale of vengeance - the much-requested text of the international bestselling audiobook voiced by Richard Armitage.

 It is a tale of ghosts, of madness, of revenge - of old alliances giving way to new intrigues. Denmark is changing, shaking off its medieval past. War with Norway is on the horizon. And Hamlet - son of the old king, nephew of the new - becomes increasingly entangled in a web of deception - and murder.

Struggling to find his place in this strange new order Hamlet tries to rekindle his relationship with Ophelia - the daughter of Elsinore’s cunning spy master, a man with plots of his own. Hamlet turns for advice and support to the one person he can trust -- Young Yorick, the slippery, unruly jester, whose father helped Hamlet through a difficult childhood. And all the while the armed forces of Fortinbras, prince of Norway, start to assemble, threatening to bring down Elsinore forever.

David Hewson
Prepare for edge-of-your-seat suspense in this Thriller Short.

Originally published in THRILLER 2 (2009),edited by #1 New York Times bestselling author Clive Cussler.



In this intense Thriller Short from bestselling author David Hewson, a comfortable isolation from current events is totally shattered. The Circle line runs in a perpetual loop beneath the city of London from the prosperous west to the poorer east. Melanie Darma, a clerk at the Palace of Westminster, sits with both hands curved protectively around the baby bump under her summer coat. She has traveled the circle so often she sometimes imagines herself a part of it. On the seat opposite from her, sits a young man in a dark polyester jacket and cheap jeans. Next to him is a grubby rucksack. When she exits the tube and walks toward the heavily guarded gate of Westminster, the young man—his rucksack held high above his head, wires dangling—runs toward her, screaming in a language she doesn’t understand. It’s an act of terrorism that will end in a shocking twist. One Melanie never anticipated.
