The Providence Rider (Paperback)
In the winter of 1703, Matthew Corbett's Manhattan neighborhood is shaken by explosions. Someone is trying-and trying very hard-to get his attention. That someone is a shadowy figure from Matthew's past: the elusive Professor Fell. The professor, it turns out, has a problem of his own, one that requires the exclusive services of Matthew Corbett.
As a result, Matthew travels from New York to Pendulum Island in the distant Bermudas, encountering a truly Dickensian assortment of memorable, often grotesque, antagonists. The result is both an exquisitely constructed novel of suspense and a meticulous recreation of a bygone era. Filled with twists, turns, and an almost tangible sense of place, The Providence Rider is historical thriller writing at its finest by New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Robert McCammon.
