This is a twisting tale about a musty old bookshop with endless shelves and high ladders, whose regular customers only seem to borrow old encoded books. Employee Clay and his friends set out to unravel the mystery and discover 500 year old puzzle involving the cloaked members of the Fellowship of the Unbroken Spine. The old meets the new, printing presses and the internet. “I shouldn’t have liked this book. Firstly, it is modern American fiction and it is about computers and cyber geeks….. BUT.… this is so different and such fun that just writing about it makes me want to start reading it all over again…” Sue
