Publisher's Synopsis

A young librarian, Simon Watson, receives a mysterious book from an antiquarian bookseller, sent to him because it is inscribed with the name Verona Bonn, Simon's grandmother. It tells the story of two doomed lovers who were part of a travelling circus more than 200 years ago. The paper crackles with age as Simon turns the yellowed pages filled with notes and sketches. He is fascinated, yet as he reads, Simon becomes increasingly unnerved. Why do so many women in his family drown on 24th July? And could his sister, Enola, who has suddenly turned up at home for the first time in years, risk the same terrible fate? As the 24th draws ever closer, Simon must unlock the mysteries of the book, and decode his family history - before it's too late.
