It's a literary mystery novel, published between 2005 and 2012. It was popular for a short period. I didn't think to buy a copy at the time. Now I want to read it, but I can't remember the title.

A librarian, scholar, bookseller, book dealer or similar investigates the origins of a mysterious letter/book, and eventually discovers (I think) a centuries-old secret about a murder involving - maybe - Shakespeare or Christopher Marlowe.

Google wasn't helpful.

It's not one of those books:

The Rule of Four - Ian Caldwell
Possession - A. S. Byatt
An Instance of the Fingerpost - Iain Pears
The Eight - Katherine Neville
The Club Dumas (a.k.a. The Ninth Gate), The Flanders Panel, The Seville Communion or The Fencing Master - Arturo Perez-Reverte
Foucault's Pendulum, The Name of the Rose or any by Umberto Eco
The Shadow of the Wind - Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Ex-Libris - Ross King
The House on Moon Lake - Frances Duranti
The Secret Supper - Javier Sierra
or any Dan Brown book.

Actually, if you could think of any more books similar to those, please do mention them. I love reading the mystery-within-history sort. I also like parallel stories- a story that shifts between present day and the past as part of solving a mystery. Thanks.
