In the aftermath of the fire, a semi-mummified body is discovered in the ashes of St. Paul's, in a tomb that should have been empty.

    Once visited by the likes of Charles Dickens, William Thackeray, and George Eliot, the London Library is a maze of books - a jumble of first editions and forgotten texts. For Tony, it is a refuge from the failure his life has become - and it is about to be invaded by a destructive old friend. Adam is a world-renowned novelist who spends so much time writing articles and appearing in documentaries that it seems impossible he actually has time to write books. He visits the library to research a nearly-forgotten English poet, Francis Youlgreave, who just happens to be Tony's obsession.
