Dark Tracks by Philippa Gregory
Hand Signed by Philippa Gregory to the Title Page
Our BookEnds section is where the last of our Coles Signed Editions come to be sold off at a discount from the original selling price. These are the last copies we have and they've been bashed about a bit - they are likely to have been on display in the shop where they have picked up a bit of damage, or perhaps bumped in the stock room. Each book has a selection of images of the damage you can expect to see on the book you get, although of course these bumps and knocks will vary from book to book.
Luca Vero is a member of the secret Order of Darkness, tasked by his master to uncover the truth behind strange happenings. Together with Lady Isolde, her friend and confidant Ishraq, Luca’s manservant Freize, and Brother Peter, Luca travels across medieval Europe – seeking out the signs of the end of days, judging the supernatural and testing the new science. Trapped in a village possessed by a dancing madness, the group fights to keep their own sanity. When Isolde dances away in red shoes and Ishraq takes dramatic revenge on their covert assassin the young people discover that the greatest danger is in the men who have come to their rescue. These are the truly dangerous madmen of Europe who carry a dark hatred that will last for centuries.
