**Winner of the eDunnit Award for Crime ebook of the Year** Shortlisted for an LA Times Book Award, and a Daily Mail Book of the Year 'Deeply atmospheric. . . Combines intrigue, magic and antiquarian bookselling.' Observer 'A marvellous, magical novel' Irish Times 'Irresistible. . . A lavish, lush quest novel.' LAUREN BEUKES Rare book dealer Lily Albrecht has been given a tip-off about The Book of the Most Precious Substance, rumoured to be the most powerful occult book ever written. With some of the world's wealthiest people willing to pay a fortune for it, she embarks on a journey from New York to New Orleans to Munich to Paris, knowing that it could also help erase the greatest tragedy of her life. But does the book really exist at all, or will Lily lose everything in search of a ghost? What readers are saying: ***** 'Erotic, thrilling, and tense all the way through. There is nothing like this on the shelves.' ***** 'Devilishly delightful. . . THE BEST TWIST ENDING of the year!!' ***** 'I'm a bit obsessed with this book. . . it's sexy and mysterious and cool, like nothing I've read before.' ***** 'My only complaint is that I wanted more!'
