9780099448594: The Dumas Club

In the world of rare books everything has its price. But when the book is a satanic tract, the currency is not money but life...

A well-know bibliophile is found hanged days after selling a rare manuscript of Alexander Dumas's classic, The Three Musketeers. Across Madrid, Spain's wealthiest book dealer has finally laid his hands on a 17th-century manual for summoning the devil. Lucas Corso, solitary and obsessive, is the detective hired to authenticate both texts. But the further he follows the trail of devil worship, the more it leads him back to Dumas. He's the unwitting protagonist in someone's evil plot, but is he sleuth or hero, Sherlock Holmes or d'Artagnan?

Review:

"A dizzyingly complicated, dazzlingly allusive, breathlessly exciting novel of adventure and detection" (Michael Kerrigan Scotsman)

"A noir meta-fiction. Even a reader armed with a Latin dictionary and a copy of The Three Musketeers cannot anticipate the thrilling twists of this Escher-like mystery" ( New Yorker)

"A sophisticated and exciting intellectual game which brilliantly illustrates the sheer delight of fiction" (Stephanie Merritt Daily Telegraph)

"A rip-roaring entertainment - tongue in cheek and sword in hand" ( Mail on Sunday)

Book Description:

A wonderfully atmospheric Spanish mystery about a manual for summoning the devil, set in the world of antiquarian booksellers
