Germany, year 799. The coronation of Charlemagne is around the corner. The Emperor must commission the translation of a document of vital importance. The job is entrusted to Gorgias, an expert byzantine scribe, who must complete this monumental task in secret. Theresa, the daughter of Gorgias, works as an apprentice scribe. The mysterious disappearance of her father forces her to infiltrate a conspiracy of ambition, power and death, where nothing is what it seems.

About the Author:

A native of Spain, a former educator, and industrial engineer, Antonio Garrido has received acclaim for the darkly compelling storytelling and nuanced historical details that shape his novel The Corpse Reader. This fictionalized account of the early life of Song Ci, the Chinese founding father of forensic science, represents the author s years of research into cultural, social, legal, and political aspects of life in the Tsong Dynasty, as well as his extensive study of Song Ci s own five-volume treatise on forensics. In 2012, The Corpse Reader received the Zaragoza International Prize for best historical novel published in Spain (Premio Internacional de Novela Historica Ciudad de Zaragoza). Antonio s previous novel, La Escriba, was published in 2008. Garrido currently resides in Valencia, Spain.
