An ancient and mysterious book leads Crispin Guest into a deadly maze in this latest medieval noir mystery.
1394, London. Crispin Guest, Tracker of London, is enjoying his ale in the Boar’s Tusk tavern – until a stranger leaves a mysterious wrapped bundle on his table, telling him, “You’ll know what to do.” Inside is an ancient leather-bound book written in an unrecognizable language. Accompanied by his apprentice, Jack Tucker, Crispin takes the unknown codex to a hidden rabbi, where they make a shocking discovery: it is the Gospel of Judas from the Holy Land, and its contents challenge the very doctrine of Christianity itself.
Crispin is soon drawn into a deadly maze involving murder, living saints, and lethal henchmen. Why was he given the blasphemous book, and what should he do with it? A series of horrific events confirm his fears that there are powerful men who want it – and who will stop at nothing to see it destroyed.
“Lively … Brisk prose and well-drawn characters propel this nimble excursion into religious thriller territory”
“Grim, gritty, and utterly enthralling, Westerson's gripping narrative pulls the reader deep into the dark underbelly of the Middle Ages”
“Typical of the series, the story is well plotted and comes with a deeply satisfying resolution. Another winner”
Booklist on The Deepest Grave
