An author working on a bio of Isaac Newton drowns in Rebecca Stott’s Ghostwalk, and Lydia Brooke steps in to finish the book, rekindling a tortuous love affair and embroiling herself in a web of 17th-century intrigue and sinister modern shenanigans.

Smarty-pants line
”The smell of oysters is an objective correlative for sexual repression.”
