This one makes you think and entertains in equal measure. A literary thriller for people who read older classics and claim they don’t like mysteries. (Like me.) An English professor has come back from the dead, or at least a body claims he is Dr. Nicholas Slopen, along with Dr. Samuel Johnson. Are they who they say they are…what is a soul….and as for the Russians? Makes you think and entertains in equal measure.
