Product description


THE GARDENS OF THE DEAD held me spellbound and fascinated. It is something of a tour de force to set up such a throroughly unprepossessing villain...keep us rooting for his downfall for four hours and then turn the tables to such an extent that our hearts bleed for him as the last of the many tangled knots are teased apart (Christina Hardyment, THE TIMES)

It makes a good, twisting mystery (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

As this labyrinthine tale unfolds, Brodrick is able to bring off a truly impressive sleight-of-hand: while we read on, agog for the next revelation, it becomes apparent that we're being treated to character studies quite as rich as that in many a more ostensibly "literary" novel (DAILY EXPRESS)

Ultimately superior murder mystery (Henry Sutton, DAILY MIRROR)

Book Description

In THE SIXTH LAMENTATION, William Brodrick introduced Father Anselm, the barrister turned monk who found himself plunged into the tangled history of occupied Paris. Now Father Anselm is brought back to his own past, and someone else's secrets.
