Description

The Wolf Letters, released in May 2011, is a debut historical thriller from Perth novelist Will Schaefer. The plot is a mystery that revolves around a stolen historical artefact (a wolf carved in jet) and two eighth-century letters found at the scene of a murder in Southern England, 1936. The setting for the novel oscillates between 1936 and the eighth century. According to the author, the story was inspired ‘by the real-life adventures of Winfrith, the seventh/eighth century Englishman better known as St Boniface’.
