A Little Rain on Thursday

by Matt Rubinstein

Jack lives in a world of words. His work is a search for the perfect translation, the phrase that will capture the poetry of an elusive idiom. His love for Beth is a thing of intimate word play and half-told stories.

So when he finds a fragile manuscript in the crypt of an old Sydney church, he is immediately fascinated. The language is like nothing he has ever seen. The aura of mystery is intoxicating and dangerous. But are the manuscript’s deepening secrets to be trusted? Are sinister forces gathering around him? Or does Jack’s hunger for answers come from somewhere darker, more personal?

A rich tapestry of ideas creates the backdrop for Matt Rubinstein’s dazzling new novel. _A Little Rain on Thursday_ is a gripping thriller, a tender, bittersweet love story – and a compelling depiction of a life spinning into chaos.
