Set in Oxford in the 1660s - a time and place of great intellectual; religious; scientific and political ferment - this remarkable novel centres around a young woman; Sarah Blundy; who stands accused of the murder of Robert Grove; a fellow of New College. Four witnesses describe the events surrounding his death: Marco da Cola; a Venetian Catholic intent on claiming credit for the invention of blood transfusion;Jack Prescott; the son of a supposed traitor to the Royalist cause; determined to vindicate his father; John Wallis; chief cryptographer to both Cromwell and Charles II; a mathematician; theologian and master spy; and Anthony Wood; the famous Oxford antiquary. Each one tells their version of what happened but only one reveals the extraordinary truth. Brilliantly written; utterly convincing; gripping from the first page to the last; An Instance of the Fingerpost is a magnificent tour de force.
