No civilization is safe
“A thoroughly absorbing, page-turning narrative in which the author pulls us ever deeper into the imaginative world he has created.” —Sunday Times
A chilling and dark new thriller unlike anything Robert Harris has done before.
In 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 artifacts—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.
