When Luca Campell dies a sudden and violent death, his son Jon inherits his second-hand bookshop in Copenhagen. Jon has not seen his father for twenty years since the mysterious death of his mother. When Luca's death is followed by an arson attempt on the bookshop, Jon is forced to explore his family's past. Unbeknown to Jon, the shop has been the meeting place of a society of booklovers and readers who have maintained a tradition of immense power passed down from the days of the great library of ancient Alexandria. Now someone is trying to destroy them.
