Description
A risky business, book publishing, and in 1890 London, Pen Davenport contemplates his dwindling prospects. For years he has smuggled books out of one country for publication in another, in a form of literary piracy derisively dubbed "bookaneering," but new international copyright laws are putting Davenport and his ilk out of business. Then his associate Fergins hears something almost too good to be true: Mr. Robert Louis Stevenson, close to death on the island of Samoa, labors to complete one final masterpiece. Matthew Pearl—author of The Dante Club, The Poe Shadow, and The Last Dickens—takes us on a brilliant romp through a lost literary world, as a reluctant Fergins joins Davenport in a race across the globe to beat his arch rival Belial to this final treasure.

"This swashbuckling tale of greed and great literature will remind you why Pearl is the reigning king of popular literary historical thrillers.... Guaranteed to delight lovers of history and mystery."—Library Journal (starred review)
