Description
Information
When Daniel Forster, a young Englishman, arrives in Venice for a summer job, he soon finds that the city's glittering facade masks a much darker reality. Cataloguing a library of old manuscripts, Daniel discovers a lost musical masterpiece, and is drawn into a game of deception, leading to a vertiginous spiral of criminal conspiracy and erotic pursuit, with its roots in the political minefield of Vivaldi's Venice.

Thus two stories, centuries apart, are intercut and eventually drawn together in a stunning double-twist ending that will leave the reader gasping for breath.

Complex, beautiful, suspenseful, 'Lucifer's Shadow' is David Hewson's most tantalising and rewarding novel yet.
