This is the sequel to Library of the Dead. Mr. Cooper delivers again continuing the mystery of the missing book. When it miraculously shows up at a rare book auction two mysterious bidders are both determined to attain it. A Shakespearean sonnet secreted in the end flap begins the reader’s continuing journey through history. Mr. Cooper also puts forth (within the context of the fictional story line) some interesting explanations for Calvinism and Nostrodamus. A good read.
