in March 2015. On a crisp spring morning, I received a letter from the executor of a distant relatives will informing me that I was one of the beneficiaries. My relative, who at this stage shall remain nameless, was an archaeologist who moved to the Middle East in the 19 seventies for reasons that were never particularly clear. A few weeks after I received the lawyers missive, a crate arrived from Iran containing old books in both Persian and English. But at the bottom off the crate, I found a sealed leather box. When I opened the mysterious receptacle, first thing I saw was a hand written note that simply said, Be careful to whom you tell your secrets. Beneath the note, we yellowed handwritten pages. And as I began to read wth, um, I realised they had the original manuscript off something so rare and precious it would change my life forever.
