Wynter is here, the brilliant Elizabethan mystic has achieved the impossible and returned to present-day Rotherweird--and now his ultimate goal is within reach...
Geryon Wynter, the brilliant Elizabethan mystic, has achieved resurrection and returned to present-day Rotherweird. But after the chaos of Election Day, how can a stranger from another time wrest control? And for what fell purpose is Wynter back?
His dark conspiracy reaches its climax in this unique corner of England, where the study of history is forbidden and neither friend nor foe are quite what they seem.
The stakes could not be higher, for at the endgame, not only Rotherweird is under threat. The future of mankind itself hangs in the balance.
"Intricate and crisp, witty and solemn" --Hilary Mantel, Man Booker Prize-winning author of Wolf Hall on Rotherweird
