Review

"Rice is a spellbinder" (Newsweek)

"Anne Rice has a rich, dark, romantic imagination capable of glorious flights of splendid invention" (Mail on Sunday)

"Nothing less than a magician" (New York Times Book Review)

"Her work has echoes of the freewheeling, fast-talking style of the eighteenth-century novel... lush, baroque prose and fantastical plots... Rice keeps her nerve and her triumphant sense of poise" (Observer)

"An enjoyable read" (Mslexia)

Book Description

Anne Rice, on top form, returns to the mesmerizing storytelling that has captivated readers for more than three decades in a dark gothic novel of suspense about assassins and angels, set in worlds past - the first in a new series called The Songs of the Seraphim.

From the Inside Flap

Anne Rice returns to the mesmerizing storytelling that has captivated readers for more than three decades in a dark gothic novel of suspense about assassins and angels. At its centre: Toby O'Dare - Lucky the Fox - a contract killer of underground fame. A soulless soul, a dead man walking, he's fallen far from grace and lives under a series of aliases. Lucky takes his orders from someone he calls 'The Right Man', whose name and allegiances he doesn't know.

Into his nightmarish world of lone and lethal missions, comes a mysterious stranger... who offers him a chance to save lives, rather than destroy them. Lucky, who grew up in a New Orleans, son of an alcoholic mother and a murdered father, long ago dreamt of being a priest, craving rituals, taking refuge in history, books and lute music - but who instead came to embody danger, and violence - seizes his chance.

He is lifted in (angel) time and carried back through the ages to thirteenth-century Norwich, to a dangerous world, where Jews live an uneasy existence, their money coveted, protected by the crown for their function as money-lenders, and unjustly despised by the rest. Against this treacherous setting, where accusations of ritual child murder have been made against innocent Jews, O'Dare begins a journey of salvation that leads him from the medieval villages of England to the cities of London and Paris as his quest becomes a story of danger and flight, loyalty and betrayal, selflessness and love.

From the Back Cover

Toby O'Dare - Lucky the Fox - is a contract killer of underground fame. In his youth Lucky had dreamt of being a priest, instead he fell into a life danger and violence.

Living under a series of aliases he long ago lost any sense of his true self, becoming a pawn to 'The Right Man, a contractor of dark and unknown allegiances.

Lucky has one place where he can be without disguise, but his latest assignment is at this sanctuary, The Mission Inn. And it is an order to kill. Into this nightmarish world of lone and lethal missions, comes a mysterious stranger, a seraph, who offers him a chance to save lives, rather than destroy them. Now he has his chance to repair the damage of his past.
