Overview

In an English country house, a strange experiment is about to take place: “A gem . . . unadulterated entertainment” (The New York Times).
 
In this unique blend of suspense, satire, and science fiction, Sir Edward Leithen settles in for a holiday weekend at Lady Flambard’s stately home in the Cotswolds. But the house party turns strange when one of the guests, the enigmatic physicist and mathematician Professor Moe, enlists the help of Leithen and his companions in a bizarre experiment meant to give them a glimpse of the future.
 
For those who take part, the consequences will be dramatic—and test Leithen’s formidable powers of reasoning—making for a “confident, assured” novel (The Spectator) from John Buchan, author of The Thirty-Nine Steps and a recipient of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize.
