The Bookman's Tale
Communing with Amanda's spirit as he wrestles with the mystery, Peter follows a trail of clues across the centuries - from a raucous London tavern where the unscrupulous bookseller Bartholomew Harbottle plots against the "upstart crow" William Shakespere to the unfinished ramparts of an Oxfordshire mansion where a frustrated Victorian painter mourns his lost loves and takes revenge on his book-collecting rival. Along the way Peter discovers his holy grail: a priceless artifact that could prove the truth about Shakespeare's identity. Fearing the book may be a forger, Peter races against time to prove its authenticity, evading the clutches of a murder, meeting a woman who may hold the key to the mystery of the portrait, and finally discovering the truth about his own past and precious Amanda.
The bookman's Tale is a former antiquarian bookseller's sparkling novel that is at once a deeply moving love story as well as a delightful exploration of one of the literature's most tantalizing mysteries.
