Beschreibung

Benjamin Weaver, the quick-witted pugilist turned private investigator, returns in David Liss's sequel to the Edgar Award-winning novel, A Conspiracy of Paper.

"[A] wonderful book . . . every bit as good as [Liss's] remarkable debut . . . easily one of the year's best."-The Boston Globe

Moments after his conviction for a murder he did not commit, at a trial presided over by a judge determined to find him guilty, Benjamin Weaver is accosted by a stranger who cunningly slips a lockpick and a file into his hands. In an instant he understands two things: Someone wants him to hang-and another equally mysterious agent is determined to see him free. After a daring escape from eighteenth-century London's most notorious prison, Weaver must face another challenge: to prove himself innocent when the corrupt courts have shown they care nothing for justice. Unable to show his face in public, Weaver pursues his inquiry disguised as a wealthy merchant seeking to involve himself in the contentious world of politics. Desperately navigating a labyrinth of schemers, crime lords, assassins, and spies, Weaver learns that in an election year, little is what it seems and the truth comes at a staggeringly high cost.

Praise for A Spectacle of Corruption

"Liss is a superb writer who evokes the squalor of London with Hogarthian gusto."-People

"In Benjamin Weaver, Mr. Liss has created a multifaceted character and a wonderful narrator."-The New York Sun
