This blog started out as Michael Doherty's Personal Library, containing reviews of books that normally don't get reviewed: basically porn and cult books. It was all just a bit of fun, you understand. But when I embarked on a three-year Shakespeare study, Shakespeare basically took over, which is a good thing.
The title of Sarah Shankman's mystery novel First Kill All The Lawyers is itself a Shakespeare reference. And the book opens with the quoted passage: "The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers." It's a line that Dick The Butcher says to Jack Cade in Act IV Scene ii of The Second Part Of King Henry The Sixth.
