"An important and inspiring novel."VOICE LITERARY SUPPLEMENTIt is 18th-century London and John Lempriere, a young scholar, is writing a dictionary of classical mythology in an attempt to exorcise the demons raised by his father’s violent and bizarre death. While tending to his father’s business affairs, Lempriere discovers a 150-year old conspiracy that has kept his family from its share of the fabulously wealthy East India Company. But as John begins to untangle the years of mystery and deceit, people begin to die, in ways that mirror the very myths he is researching….
Lawrence Norfolk was born in London in 1963. He has written four novels: Lemprière’s Dictionary, The Pope’s Rhinoceros, In the Shape of a Boar, and John Saturnall’s Feast.
