Description

From the internationally best-selling author of Fatherland and the Cicero Trilogy--a chilling and dark new thriller unlike anything Robert Harris has done before. 1468. A young priest, Christopher Fairfax, arrives in a remote Exmoor village to conduct the funeral of his predecessor. The land around is strewn with ancient artefacts--coins, fragments of glass, human bones--which the old parson used to collect. Did his obsession with the past lead to his death? Fairfax becomes determined to discover the truth. Over the course of the next six days, everything he believes--about himself, his faith, and the history of his world--will be tested to destruction.

Professional reviews

"Best known for his animated narration of DON QUIXOTE and other essential classics, Roy McMillan is one of our most versatile and accomplished voices, equally effective narrating a popular thriller. The author of FATHERLAND always keeps listeners on their toes, and here a pastiche of elements--a dystopian world, a possible murder mystery, the high action of a thriller--results in a unique genre-bending story that slowly reveals itself in the unexpected ways that delight Harris's fans. McMillan delivers the kind of steady, finely nuanced performance essential to a good suspense story, in which the narrative tension derives from the calculated withholding and unfolding of detail. Expertly written and expertly performed, this top-notch entertainment finds both author and narrator at the top of their form. D.A.W.
