A Man Against a Background of Flames

The discovery of a chest full of old documents sets mediocre middle-aged historian, James Appleby, off on a quest to find why and how members of an English religious sect suddenly disappeared in 1594. History, university politics and Appleby’s complicated love life are mixed with dramatic action sequences in a book which is both entertaining and thoughtful.
