Die Spur der Bücher
448 Pages, gebunden
Mercy Amberdale grew up in bookstores and antiquarian bookshops. She knows about the magic of stories and has the talent of bibliomancy. For rich collectors she obtains the most precious titles, stalks England’s secret libraries at night. Then, however, she follows the traces of the books to the scene of a mysterious murder: A bookseller burned to death in the middle of his shop – and not one piece of paper was touched by the flames. Mercy gets caught in a web of magical intrigues and dark family secrets until the search for truth leads her to the origins of bibliomancy itself.
