Is “The King James Conspiracy” the second coming of "The Name of the Rose?"
Readers will have a chance to find out on Tuesday, May 26 when the Eagle Eye Book Shop, 2076 N. Decatur Rd., Decatur, holds a 6:30 p.m. release party for Clayton State Theater Director Philips DePoy's 11th novel, "The King James Conspiracy." (St. Martin’s Press, $25.95)
Since DePoy's latest work is an historical novel/murder mystery set in 17th Century England and centered on a group of scholars assigned by King James I to create a definitive English translation of the Bible, there are clearly similarities to Umberto Eco's classic 1983 historical novel/detective story, set in a northern Italian abbey in 1327. And while Eco’s novel is justly famous, there are few authors who can top DePoy for creativity.
For more information on the release party, call the Eagle Eye Book Shop’s George Scott at (404) 486-0307.
A unit of the University System of Georgia, Clayton State University is an outstanding comprehensive metropolitan university located 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.
