Paperbacks: Sepulchre, by Kate Mosse
Friday 09 May 2008
For anyone who religiously avoids novels about bloodlines, the occult and ecclesiastical manuscripts the window for escape is closing.
Even blockbusters aimed at women are no longer a conspiracy-free zone. After the commercial success of her 2005 novel Labyrinth, Kate Mosse returns to France for a story of fin-de-siècle phantoms and buried treasure. Told as a dual narrative, the novel moves between the 1890s and the present day, as two young women, centuries apart, try to unlock the secrets of a set of tarot cards with associations to Rennes-les-Bains, the village at the heart of The Da Vinci Code. Thewalls dividing the past and the present, the living and the dead, prove to be dangerously thin.
