Summary
  • Nine hundred years after a twelfth-century Sicilian burglar steals artifacts that possess the secret to eternal life and scatters them throughout the world, a Connecticut reporter finds evidence that someone is collecting the artifacts again
  • "Jon Fasman's dizzyingly plotted intellectual thriller suggests a marriage between Dan Brown and Donna Tartt. When reporter Paul Tomm is assigned to investigate the mysterious death of a reclusive academic, he finds himself pursuing leads that date back to the twelfth century and the theft of alchemical instruments from the geographer of the Sicilian court. Now someone is trying to retrieve them. Interspersed with the present action are the stories of the men and women who came to possess those charmed--and sometimes cursed--artifacts, which have powers that go well beyond the transmutation of lead into gold. Deftly combining history, magic, suspense, and romance--and as handsomely illustrated as an ancient incunabulum--The Geographer's Library is irresistible."--Publisher's website
