By Nicholas Mark Harding.

Three Keys
Two Spheres
One Secret

Two enigmatic 18th century manuscripts appear to authenticate the events described in Sunsphere, a novel by Mark Arden, best-selling author of historical conspiracy thrillers. Had Arden inadvertently stumbled upon a genuine mystic secret when he wrote his latest blockbuster? Is there a real mystery to be unravelled?

Three friends, all experts in mysterious antiquities, decide to investigate. With the reluctant Arden in tow, they unearth a secret code in the Somerset country house where the first manuscript was discovered. The clues point to Venice, to its famous Customs House on the Grand Canal. Here, it seems, the golden globe of Fortuna, high above the building, conceals a great secret – exactly as Arden wrote in Sunsphere.

But does the author know more than he’s letting on? Who are the sinister people shadowing their every move? Could the solution to the mystery blow apart one of the world’s major religions? The most cynical member of the team has his doubts, the truth is even stranger, and all is not as it seems....


Nicholas Mark Harding is a screenwriter and, under the name Nick Harding, the author of a number of non-fiction books. He lives in Somerset.
