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.

DO NOT BE FOOLED! This is not a historical novel. This is a post apocalyptic time warp ball of confusion. I checked my device twice to make sure it hadn't malfunctioned. The author has you enjoying his tale in what seems like the middle ages and THE VERY NEXT SENTENCE is talking about computers and emails and ATMs?????? Waste of my hard earned money to say the least!!!! Not a book I will be finishing.
