Synopsis

Book of Secrets by Chris Roberson

Reporter Spencer Finch is embroiled in the hunt for a missing book, encountering along the way cat burglars and mobsters, hackers and warrior monks. At the same time, he’s trying to make sense of the legacy left by his late grandfather, a chest of what appear to be magazines from the golden age of pulp fiction, and even earlier. Following his nose, Finch gradually uncovers a mystery involving a mythical Ancient Greek play, secret societies, generations of masked vigilantes… and an entire secret history of mankind. Already critically acclaimed worldwide for both his SF and time-spanning fantasy series, Chris Roberson is at the height of his powers.

Reviews

“Chris Roberson is one of that bold band of young writers who are taking the stuff of genre fiction and turning it into a whole new literary form – a form for the 21st century. A talented storyteller, he has a unique ear, a clever eye, an eloquence all too rare in modern fiction.” – Michael Moorcock

“An exciting new writer.” – Jonathan Strahan

“Chris Roberson is another author to watch.” – Charles de Lint
