The Long Sonata of the Dead

(2013)
(A book in the Bibliomysteries series)
A Novella by

 
In pursuit of the find of a lifetime, an academic confronts an old rival.

Once visited by the likes of Charles Dickens, William Thackeray, and George Eliot, the London Library is a maze of books - a jumble of first editions and forgotten texts. For Tony, it is a refuge from the failure his life has become - and it is about to be invaded by a destructive old friend.

Adam is a world-renowned novelist who spends so much time writing articles and appearing in documentaries that it seems impossible he actually has time to write books. He visits the library to research a nearly-forgotten English poet, Francis Youlgreave, who just happens to be Tony's obsession. Tony has staked his career on the long-dead clergyman, and will do whatever it takes to keep Adam from stealing his research. In this ghostly library, scholarly conflict is anything but academic.

The Bibliomysteries are a series of short tales about deadly books, by top mystery authors.
