The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco

"Clever and immersive, learned and witty, I was drawn into Eco's ingenious story and warmly drawn characters." - Fred, Adult and Teen Services

In 1327, scholar-monk Brother William of Baskerville is sent to an isolated Italian abbey to investigate a series of mysterious deaths. He conducts interviews, collects evidence, deciphers arcane symbols and manuscripts, and finally navigates the monastery's labyrinthine library to confront the evil within.
