Bookseller Recommendation

The Second Sleep

“Enjoy Robert Harris' 'The Second Sleep' using this two step process: 1.) Don't read reviews, you'll only subject yourself to spoilers. Seriously, why are you still reading this? 2.) Read (or listen to) this book. It's so hard to put down that it had me wishing my commute was longer. In Father Fairfax, Captain Hancock, and Lady Durston we find shards of ourselves that enable us to relate to how we'd manage in their circumstances. You won't soon forget this story.”

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.
