THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE 2017 BOOKS ARE MY BAG READERS AWARD FOR POPULAR FICTION Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old, but owing to a rare condition, he's been alive for centuries. From Elizabethan England to Jazz-Age Paris, from New York to the South Seas, Tom has seen a lot, and now craves an ordinary life. Always changing his identity to stay alive, Tom has the perfect cover - working as a history teacher at a London comprehensive. Here he can teach the kids about wars and witch hunts as if he'd never witnessed them first-hand. He can try to tame the past that is fast catching up with him. The only thing Tom must not do is fall in love.

Customer Reviews


Truly dreadful.


Having seen Mr Stephen fry recommended it I decided to purchase. I do like historical novels but wasn't sure how I would find a book about a man who was four hundred years old; needless to say I loved it. Well written, almost to the point of being up there with Patrick O'brian; you could almost smell the stench of Tudor London. Give it a go you won't be disappointed.

A nice escape...

Bought this book on a Thursday and had finished it by the Sunday. At first I found the short chapters annoying but it results in making the book ‘hard to put down’ as you can rattle through it quite quickly. I’d definitely recommend this as a great holiday book and the idea behind it is original. Great story line that’s well written. If you’re in doubt about buying it then I’d say that it’s definitely worth taking a punt on.
