’A beautiful and elegant account of an ordinary man’s unexpected and reluctant descent into heroism during the second world war.’ – Malcolm Gladwell on The Paris Architect

In this riveting novel from The New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Architect, a man in disgrace finds that digging up the past is the only road he can take.

In turn of the century London, Douglas Layton is a disgrace. One of the music halls he so lovingly designed fell to pieces during a packed performance, killing dozens and ruining his reputation as an architect not to mention eventually sending him to jail.

Five years later, Layton is attempting to rebuild some kind of a life for himself, despite the notoriety. He is able to disguise himself as a scenic designer at Nottingham Grand Imperial Theatre, but his past is never far behind…and something ever more dangerous is brewing in the walls of the music hall.

’This wonderfully realized background coupled with insights into British society make this a standout.’ Publisher’s Weekly, Starred Review
