A clever, pacey thriller set around the search for a lost Shakespearean play.
A lost manuscript and it's secrets buried for centuries...
An encrypted trail that leads to incalculable wealth...
A distinguished Shakespearean scholar tortured to death...
All clues in a dangerous hunt to find a hidden treasure that men are willing to kill - and die - for.
'The Book Of Air And Shadows' is a complex, tricksy, action-packed literary mystery tale. It centres upon the book of the title - which might just be the long-lost manuscript of Shakespeare's last play 'Mary Queen of Scots', written to rehabilitate the new King's mother in the minds of the nation. Colourful characters and wry humour draw the reader into a world in which antiquarian book collectors, bookbinding experts, literary academia, intellectual rights lawyers and Russian gangsters butt up against one another in a thoroughly violent but utterly engaging and page-turning tale.
