The year is 1468 and Christopher Fairfax, a young priest, is travelling to a rural English village to conduct the funeral of the parish priest who has recently died. When he arrives he discovers a poor, dark village, its secretive population, and an uncanny collection of curios. After the huge success of Conclave and Munich, each new Robert Harris thriller is a must-read for any fan of a really gripping read. I read this in one sitting!
