A Conspiracy of Paper

by David Liss

An 18th-century tale of murder, Jewish culture, finance and conspiracy - a complicated plot mix but a brilliant read with a violent but principled hero. I really wanted him to come out on top.

Extract

With the clarity that comes with the light of morning, I realised precisely the gravity of the situation. If my assailants had desired to murder me they had certainly failed miserably and if their desire had been to frighten me away, I resolved that they should fail just as thoroughly on that score. I took this assault as incontravertible proof that my father had been murdered and that men of violence and power wished to keep the truth of his death a secret.
