THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
WINNER OF THE 2017 BOOKS ARE MY BAG READERS AWARD FOR POPULAR FICTION

Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old, but owing to a rare condition, he's been alive for centuries. From Elizabethan England to Jazz-Age Paris, from New York to the South Seas, Tom has seen a lot, and now craves an ordinary life.

Always changing his identity to stay alive, Tom has the perfect cover - working as a history teacher at a London comprehensive. Here he can teach the kids about wars and witch hunts as if he'd never witnessed them first-hand. He can try to tame the past that is fast catching up with him. The only thing Tom must not do is fall in love.

It gets hard ,

Great

Having seen Mr Stephen fry recommended it I decided to purchase. I do like historical novels but wasn't sure how I would find a book about a man who was four hundred years old; needless to say I loved it. Well written, almost to the point of being up there with Patrick O'brian; you could almost smell the stench of Tudor London. Give it a go you won't be disappointed.
