When Crispin Guest finds himself trapped in circumstances outside his control, he must rely on the wits of his young apprentice, Jack Tucker, to do the rescuing. Crispin awakens in a strange bed after a night of passion when he finds a woman dead, murdered. Drunk, Crispin scarcely remembers the night before. Did he kill her? But when other young women turn up dead under similar circumstances, he knows there is a deadly stalker loose in London. Could it have to do with the mysterious Tears of the Virgin Mary kept under lock and key by a close-lipped widow, a relic that a rival family would kill to get their hands on? What does this relic, that forces empathy on all those surrounding it, have to do with murder for hire? With Crispin shackled and imprisoned by the immutable sheriffs who would just as soon see him hang than get to the real truth, Jack hits the ground running and procures the help of a fresh young lawyer to help them solve the crime.

"Creative and enthralling . . . If you enjoy authentic Medieval history combined with modern suspense, this one's for you." —John Lescroart Once a Knight of the Realm, Crispin Guest was stripped of his title and his lands and must now earn his meager living through his wits. With the help of his young apprentice, reformed thief Jack Tucker, Guest is known to certain populations as The Tracker, the man who can find anything—for a price. It is for that reason that Guest is sought out by Nicholas Flamel, an absent-minded alchemist. Both Flamel's wife and his apprentice are missing, and he wants Guest to find them and bring them home. Before he can even begin looking, Guest discovers that Flamel's house has been ransacked. Then Flamel's assistant turns up—dead, hanging from the rafters with a note pinned to his chest by a dagger. It is a ransom note that promises the safe return of his wife in exchange for the Philosopher's Stone, which is reputed to turn lead into gold and create the elixir of life. And the kidnappers aren't the only ones after it. From the highest nobility to Flamel's fellow alchemists, everyone is seeking the stone for themselves. Guest must rescue the missing wife and find the stone before it falls into unworthy hands, in Jeri Westerson's Shadow of the Alchemist.

Staunend folgen wir dem Kalligraphen Dalessius durch die Wunder des 18. Jahrhunderts: Automaten, erfinderische Henker, sonderliche Bordelle, frühe Computer, Hinrichtungsmaschinen, Teiche voller giftiger Fische, düstere Schlösser und die Linienkutschen für Leichen sind alle in den Kampf der Aufklärung gegen die finsteren Mächte des untergehenden Ancien Régime verstrickt. Voltaire und Dalessius decken einen ungeheuren Coup des Klerus auf, aber können sie ihn auch verhindern? Pablo De Santis erzählt uns die Zeit vor der Französischen Revolution so, wie wir sie garantiert noch nie gesehen haben.
