The wise man, the widow and the deceiver have returned to discover the truth about a man who only exists in a dream.
Professor Campbell and Gwenn Chapel thought they'd found their answers, but when Campbell's old rival, Dr. Henry Marshall arrived to deliver a mysterious artifact to the widow of John Chapel, their search for the truth begins once again.
While Gwenn and Dr. Marshall revisit the past and unravel the mystery surrounding a 12th century crusader and a German mercenary, Campbell chases down leads in the present, trying to prove that someone is deliberately trying to mislead them all. He enlists an unlikely ally in the process, who recounts the final days of John Chapel and the evil he dedicated those last days to tracking down. Could it be the same evil that plagued the men of the third crusade? Is it the same plot that those men worked to undo eight centuries ago?
All of them will learn that there are consequences for revealing the secrets of men, no matter how old those secrets are.
This sequel to "The Girl in the Rain" follows the continuing saga of John Chapel, and promises to deliver more of the same intrigue, surprise twists and character-driven storyline as the first book.
