The English kings who rise from their graves in Westminster Abbey on All Souls' Eve are in a terrible fix. They want visiting New Yorker Charlie Chancer to use his special IT skills to steal abbey funds and send them off to queens who have already come to life and escaped the abbey. Handsome commodities trader Charlie is also in a bind. He has whisked his young son, Georgie, away to London (amid a bitter custody battle with his ex-wife) to join his teenage daughter, Ginny, who is on a student exchange. Tudor queens show Georgie architectural wonders of the abbey. Plantagenet kings give Ginny picturesque tutorials on their colourful but devastating battles. But what are the kings to do with these visitors who have seen their dazzling coronation ceremony and their daring TV games? Kill them or free them when they may tell what they have seen?
Sean Dennis Cashman worked as a historian for New York University Press, an editor for the Ford Foundation and a music and theatre journalist for the New Haven Register. He taught at the University of Manchester, New York University and Adelphi University on Long Island where he was dean of arts and sciences. His America in the Gilded Age is a classic. In this novel, he draws from his varied life to create a vivid tapestry mixing history, fantasy and satire. Kings buried in Westminster Abbey rise on All Souls' Eve. They entertain a New York family for a scary price.
