Description

Mathematics student G is trying to resurrect his studies, which is proving difficult as he finds himself – and not for the first time – drawn into investigating a series of mysterious crimes.

When Kristen, a researcher hired by the Lewis Carroll Brotherhood, makes a startling new discovery concerning pages torn from Caroll’s diary, she hesitates to reveal to her employers a hitherto unknown chapter in his life. Oxford would be rocked to its core if the truth about Lewis Carroll’s relationship with Alice Liddell – the real Alice – were brought to light.

After Kristen is involved in a surreal accident and members of the Brotherhood are anonymously sent salacious photographs of Alice, G joins forces with Kristen as they begin to realise that dark powers are at work. More pictures are received, and it becomes clear that a murderer is stalking anyone who shows too much interest in Carroll’s life.

G must stretch his mathematical mind to its limits to solve the mystery and understand the cryptic workings of the Brotherhood. Until then, nobody, not even G, is safe. A thrilling novel from the author of The Oxford Murders, inspired by true, strange stories from Caroll’s life, The Oxford Brotherhood is sure to make you curiouser and curiouser.

Publisher Review

Once again Guillermo Martinez provides a winning combination of highbrow book chat and high jinks * The Times * Highly entertaining * Sunday Times * A well-researched literary thriller, dripping with Oxonian atmosphere, this is also an absorbing detective story -- Mat Coward * Morning Star * Quirky, unashamedly intellectual, sexy, this is a truly ingenious story, brilliantly paced, and finely translated by Alberto Manguel. A worthy successor to the stupendous The Oxford Murders -- A. N. Wilson * The Tablet *
