9780091953232: The Secrets of Life and Death

Krakow, 1585

Summoned by the King of Poland to help save his dying niece, Edward Kelley and his master, alchemist and scholar Dr John Dee, discover a dark secret at the heart of The Countess Bathory's malady.

But perhaps the cure will prove more terrifying than the alternative...

England, 2013

Jackdaw Hammond lives in the shadows, a practitioner and purveyor of occult materials. But when she learns of a young woman found dead on a train, her body covered in arcane symbols, there's no escaping the attention of police consultant Felix Guichard.

Together they must solve a mystery centuries in the making, or die trying.
