A newspaper assignment to investigate a 90-year-old death pulls an intrepid reporter into a dangerous search for historical documents of potentially great religious importance in this novel.
The danger that lurks wherever they go adds conflict and suspense to a narrative that is generally more investigative in nature. The novel toggles between the present day and Matthias’ time in London, and Hathaway is strongest in the work’s depiction of the styles, manners, and characters of the earlier period.
Hathaway delivers an engaging adventure with a few captivating twists, amiable characters, and an intriguing historical discovery, all conveyed via able prose. An entertaining, well-paced beach read, enhanced by an atmospheric visit to 1920s London.
