"The Second Sleep" er Robert Harris intelligente thriller om en fiktiv fortid i 1400-tallet, hvor en ung præst kommer på sporet af sin forgængers mystiske liv.

I 1468 ankommer den unge præst Christopher Fairfax til en isoleret landsby i Exmoor, for at udføre sin forgængers begravelse. Fairfax opdager hurtigt sin forgængers dybe interesse for antikke artefakter, mønter og menneskelige knogler. Førte den gamle præsts obskure interesse også til hans død? Da Fairfax drages dybere ind i det isolerede samfund, bliver alt han tror på om ham selv, hans tro og verdenshistorien alvorligt udfordret.

 

Robert Harris skaber i "The Second Sleep" et dragende historisk univers og en tankevækkende fortælling om en ung præst, som rammes af en rystende tvivl på alt det, han tror er sandt.

    THE LATEST NOVEL FROM ROBERT HARRIS'A thoroughly absorbing, page-turning narrative in which the author pulls us ever deeper into the imaginative world he has created.' SUNDAY TIMES'Harris is rightly praised as the master of the intelligent thriller. Genuinely thrilling, wonderfully conceived and entirely without preaching, it probes the nature of history, of collective memory and forgetting, and exposes the fragility of modern civilisation.' DAILY TELEGRAPH_____________________________________All civilisations think they are invulnerable. History warns us none is.1468. A young priest, Christopher Fairfax, arrives in a remote Exmoor village to conduct the funeral of his predecessor. The land around is strewn with ancient artefacts - coins, fragments of glass, human bones - which the old parson used to collect. Did his obsession with the past lead to his death?As Fairfax is drawn more deeply into the isolated community, everything he believes - about himself, his faith and the history of his world - is tested to destruction._____________________________________'[Harris] takes us on a thrilling ride while serving up serious food for thought . . . I doubt there is a living writer who is better at simultaneously making readers' adrenaline pump while their brains whirr.' SUNDAY EXPRESS'A truly surprising future-history thriller. Fabulous, really.' EVENING STANDARD`The book's real power lies in its between-the-lines warning that our embrace of the internet represents some kind of sleepwalk into oblivion. It's a provocative, tub-thumping sci-fi of which H. G. Wells might have been proud.' DAILY MAIL`Harris' latest work intelligently warps historical fiction and tackles issues of religion, science and the apocalypse in the process. As he flexes his imagination, you will be left pondering as often as you are page-turning.' HERALD'A brilliantly imaginative thriller' READER'S DIGEST
