The Meaning of Night - A Confession

£9.99

Product description

John Murray 2006. Used hardback with purple cloth cover and printed jacket. Signed first edition with small tears and scuffing to jacket, otherwise very good condition.

As a young boy, Edward Glyver always believed he was destined for greatness. This seemed to be the stuff of dreams, until a chance discovery convinces him that he was right - and he will stop at nothing to win back a prize that is rightfully his.

A cold October night, 1854. In a dark passageway, an innocent man is stabbed to death. So begins the extraordinary story of Edward Glyver, book lover, scholar and murderer. As a young boy, Glyver always believed he was destined for greatness. This seems the stuff of dreams, until a chance discovery convinces Glyver that he was right: greatness does await him, along with immense wealth and influence. And he will stop at nothing to win back a prize that he now knows is rightfully his. Glyver's path leads him from the depths of Victorian London, with its foggy streets, brothels and opium dens, to Evenwood, one of England's most enchanting country houses. His is a story of betrayal and treachery, of death and delusion, of ruthless obsession and ambition. And at every turn, driving Glyver irresistibly onwards, is his deadly rival: the poet-criminal Phoebus Rainsford Daunt. Thirty years in the writing, The Meaning of Night is a stunning achievement. Full of drama and passion, it is an enthralling novel that will captivate readers right up to its final thrilling revelation.

Dedication by author to Aime on the title page.
