Having already addressed the mystery and intrigue of imperial Rome and Nazi Germany, Robert Harris turns his attention to medieval England and the compelling story of a dead priest, ancient artifacts, and suppressed the religion. Another supreme achievement of the literary master craftsman, The Second Sleep fizzes suspense, character, and spectacular shots of the scene. All the civilization, they think they are invulnerable. The story admonishes us to anyone. 1468. A young priest, Christopher Fairfax, arrives in a remote Exmoor village to conduct the funeral of his predecessor. The surrounding land is dotted with ancient artifacts – coins, bits of glass, bones in the human body, that old pastor used to collect. Did his obsession with the past lead to his death? Fairfax becomes determined to discover the truth. In the course of the next six days, everything he believes – about himself, his faith and the history of the whole world, which will be tested to destruction.
