SHADOW OF THE ALCHEMIST A MEDIEVAL NOIR
by Jeri Westerson
Perenelle, the wife of infamous alchemist Nicholas Flamel, has been kidnapped and the culprit wants his most prized creation, the Philosopher’s Stone. Flanel’s assistant is murdered and ancient symbols turn up on walls and carved on stones throughout London. Crispin must decipher them in a strange treasure hunt to find the man responsible. What follows is a chase down the shadowy streets of London, between men who know the secrets of poisons and purges, sorcery and forbidden sciences. With the help of Flamel’s deaf mute servant Avelyn and the indomitable Jack Tucker, Crispin races against time to save Perenelle from disaster, and Philosopher’s Stone from falling into the wrong hands.
“Lively action and heart-stopping suspense.”- C.W. Gortner, author of THE TUDOR CONSPIRACY
