"Mr. Taylor is a sophisticated writer . . . with a high degree of literary expertise."
--New York Times Book Review
1786, Jerusalem College, Cambridge
Desperate to salvage the reputation of her son, Frank, who has been locked away after seeing the ghost of a deceased woman at Jerusalem College, Lady Anne Oldershaw employs John Holdsworth to investigate. When Holdsworth, the author of a stinging argument on why ghosts are mere delusions, finds himself haunted, he becomes more determined than ever to find the deceased woman's murderer. No one will leave Jerusalem unchanged.
"Taylor's latest delivers an original historical mystery that uses the language and attitude of the period in a fresh way . . . a successful piece of compelling suspense literature and sophisticated historical crime fiction."
"Those made of sterner stuff will relish Taylor's dark and gripping tale."
"With Taylor you are in the hands of a consummate storyteller: He's a recipient of a Cartier Diamond Dagger award for good reason."
