Lucifer's Shadow: A Novel

No reviews
In an ancient burial ground on an island off Venice, a young woman' s casket is pried open, an object is wrenched from her hands, and an extraordinary adventure begins. From the moment he arrives in Venice, Daniel Forster is seduced by the city' s mystery and eroticism. An earnest young academic, Daniel has come for a summer job cataloguing a private collector' s library. But when Daniel' s employer sends him to buy a stolen violin from a petty thief, a chain reaction of violence and deception ignites. Suddenly Daniel is drawn into a police investigation-- and a tempest swirling around a beautiful woman, a mysterious palazzo, and a lost musical masterpiece dating back centuries. With each step he takes, Daniel unwittingly retraces a journey that began in 1733, when another young man came to Venice. And when, in this realm of intrigue and beauty, two lovers came face-to-face with a killer-- and a mystery was born. Separated by centuries, two tales of passion, betrayal, and danger collide in David Hewson' s dazzling novel. Sweeping us from the intrigue of Vivaldi' s Venice to the gritty world of a modern cop, from the genius of a prodigy to the greed of a killer, Lucifer' s Shadow builds to a shattering crescendo-- and one last, breathtaking surprise.
