About The Levantine Journal
It is 1936 and Carl Soljuk, an unassuming Shakespeare professor, has his orderly existence turned upside down when he receives some troubling news: his brother has disappeared in Syria, and the only clue to his whereabouts is part of an old manuscript detailing the Eastern travels of an English nobleman.
So begins a search that will take Carl far from the comfort of London’s libraries and lecture halls, and back towards his Syrian homeland via the waterways of Venice, the cobbled streets of Sofia, and the bazaars of Istanbul. Yet with shadowy figures on his tail, Carl soon finds himself in a race against time, both to locate his brother and to discover the incredible secret of the Levantine journal…
