Shakespeare Reference in Sarah Shankman's First Kill All The Lawyers

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.
