Gordon Sanitaire is dead. The fourth bullet from the Glock Pn35 catches him - fatally - in the gut. And the key to the secret dies with him. But why is his body arranged in a re-enaction of Anna Karenina's death? This is the first of many mysteries which Professor James Crack from the University of Cat Butt, Nebraska, must solve, otherwise he's going to be banged up in a Brussels prison (and even by Belgium standards, Brussels is a small town). So begins a breathless chase, full of twists and turns, which takes Crack (and his seriously beautiful assistant) across at least three borders, during which, through clues hidden in the great books of the past, they uncover some stunning evidence that there is a sinister cabal of publishers who are determined to undermine the prediction that 2000 years after the Bible was written a new book of such power will be produced that it will render all other books pointless and so destroy the publishing industry ...
