The Cornish Trilogy : What's Bred in the Bone, The Rebel Angels, The Lyre of Orpheus Paperback / softback
The University of St John and the Holy Ghost (known affectionately as Spook) has a problem - and an opportunity.
Strange, eccentric art patron and collector Francis Cornish has died and faculty members have been made executors of his complicated will.
But in the realization of their duties, they find themselves drawn into Cornish's bizarre, secretive and mystical world.
In this spellbinding trilogy a host of memorable characters - defrocked, mischief-making monks, half-mad professors, gypsies and musical geniuses - become entangled in a story that involves theft, perjury, scholarship, murder, love, and the squandering of plenty of cash.
