Review:

"A masterpiece" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"As rich and exciting as Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose, but deeper and more disturbing... It begins as a murder mystery but ends in a revelation of deeper mysteries of death and rebirth" ( New York Times)

"Highly imaginative" ( Guardian)

"A short, charged and imaginative fable-cum-murder-mystery which uses [Fuller's] gift for narrative and for elaborate metaphor to great effect" ( Sunday Times)

Book Description:

The award-winning, magical first novel by acclaimed poet John Fuller.
