The heartbreaking legend of The Phantom of the Opera, Gaston Leroux's tale of love, murder, passion and tragedy, was adapted by Andrew Lloyd Webber into a spectacular stage musical. Now, working with Lord Lloyd Webber, Frederick Forsyth has written a stunning sequel to this timeless story. It is set in 1906. Erik, the creature with the hideous face but poetic heart, has escaped to America, to a life that begins in misery and ends in wealth, influence and power. He has heard that his beloved -- now an international opera star -- has a son, and is determined to learn the truth.

A significant dparture from such Forsyth standards as The Devil's Alternative or The Day of the Jackal; no spies or terrorists here. It gathers bits of narrative from the perspectives of a number of different characters, as Forsyth often does. As the title implies, it's a sequel to the famous French story of the Phantom of the Opera. Quite a concise but captivating story, it can easily be read in one long evening.
