The Meaning of Night

"After killing the red-haired man, I took myself off to Quinn's for an oyster supper."

So begins the story of Edward Glyver, booklover, scholar, and murderer. A chance discovery convinces Glyver that greatness awaits him. His path to win back what is rightfully his leads him to Evenwood, one of England's most enchanting country houses, and a woman who will become his obsession.

"As beguiling as it is intelligent, full of great country houses, epic loves, fierce anger, and vicious habits."
