Following a chain of murders, an apothecary’s apprentice needs to remedy puzzles and decipher codes in pursuit of a mystery that can wreck the area during this “spectacular debut” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).
“Tell not anyone what I’ve given you.”
Until he obtained that cryptic caution, Christopher Rowe was once chuffed, studying the way to remedy advanced codes and puzzles and developing strong medications, potions, and guns as an apprentice to grasp Benedict Blackthorn—with probably an explosion or alongside the way.
But whilst a mysterious cult starts to prey on London’s apothecaries, the path of murders grows nearer and toward Blackthorn’s store. With time working out, Christopher needs to use each ability he’s discovered to find the main to a negative mystery with the ability to rip the area apart.
In his lovely debut novel, Kevin Sands brings readers on a heart-stopping event wealthy with suspense, secret, and unforgettable characters.
