THE LATEST NOVEL FROM ROBERT HARRIS 'A truly surprising future-history thriller. Fabulous, really.' DAVID SEXTON, EVENING STANDARD _____________________________________ All civilisations think they are invulnerable. History warns us none is. 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? As Fairfax is drawn more deeply into the isolated community, everything he believes about himself, his faith and the history of his world is tested to destruction. _____________________________________ 'A thoroughly absorbing, page-turning narrative in which the author pulls us ever deeper into the imaginative world he has created.' NICK RENNISON, SUNDAY TIMES '[Harris] takes us on a thrilling ride while serving up serious food for thought . . . I doubt there is a living writer who is better at simultaneously making readers adrenaline pump while their brains whirr.' CHARLOTTE HEATHCOTE, SUNDAY EXPRESS A wholly convincing alternative world in which a few brave heretics are determined to uncover the truth. The result is a brilliantly imaginative thriller.
