But then he starts to have the strangest and most realistic dreams, dreams that seem to solve one of the greatest mysteries of all time, to expose a conspiracy of silence that is over 400 years old. They even suggest a way to win back his estranged wife. Of course, he might be going insane... . James Boyle is a Professor of Law at Duke University, and a columnist for the Financial Times online. His articles have also been published in The New York Times, Newsweek, the Times Literary Supplement, Daedalus, the Washington Times, the International Herald-Tribune and the Guardian.
