My Review Of The Master's Book By Philip Coleman
In 1482 Mary, the last Duchess of Burgundy, lies on her deathbed in a castle in Flanders. She is only 24. In her final moments she makes a wish that, 500 years later, will threaten the lives of a boy and a girl living in Brussels.
The Master’s Book is the story of Sean, an Irish teenager, just arrived in Brussels to a house that is also a crime scene. Together with Stephanie, his classmate, he finds an illuminated manuscript, only for it to be stolen almost at
Where did this manuscript come from? Who was it originally made for? Is there a connection with the beautiful tomb Sean has seen in Bruges? Above all, why does someone want this book so badly that they are prepared to kill for it?
Part thriller and part paper-chase, this book is aimed at boys and girls of twelve and over.
I give this book a five star review. I love mysteries. I enjoyed reading this book. Philip has weaved an excellent mystery with Sean and Stephanie searching for answers. At times they faced danger that I thought they wouldn't be able to get out of. Great mystery for any age. Thank you, Philip for a great read.
