LoveReading View on The Blue Book

A charming, gentle tale about the discovery of a note in a second hand novel. The note is a quote from T S Elliot’s The Wasteland and reads like a threat. On finding the note Hugh Mullion’s curiosity is sparked and so starts a sequence of events that will unravel secrets that have long been kept hidden. With likeable characters and a fast moving plot you will be swept along in Hugh’s quest to find out the meaning of the note and who it was intended for.

The Blue Book Synopsis

"Fear death by water. D."
 
The discovery of a cryptic note hidden inside a second-hand book sends thirty-something Hugh Mullion on an obsessive search for its previous owner. Hugh uncovers secrets that have lain hidden for sixty years and turn upside down his views of personal identity and the certainty of the past. Along the way, Hugh learns more about himself and what he really wants from his relationship with his partner, Kate - and about the puzzling disappearances of Anthony Buffo, in whose shop Hugh found the book that changed everything.
