Summary
"In 1859, ex-East India Company smuggler Merrick Tremayne is trapped at home in Cornwall after sustaining an injury that almost cost him his leg. When the India Office recruits Merrick for an expedition to fetch quinine--essential for the treatment of malaria--from deep within Peru, he knows it's a terrible idea. Nearly every able-bodied expeditionary who's made the attempt has died, and he can barely walk. But Merrick is desperate to escape the strange events plaguing his family's crumbling estate, so he sets off, against his better judgment, for the edge of the Amazon. There he meets Raphael, a priest around whom the villagers spin unsettling stories of impossible disappearances, cursed woods, and living stone. Merrick must separate truth from fairytale and gradually realizes that Raphael is the key to a legacy left by generations of Tremayne explorers before him..."--Back cover
Summary
Still recovering from his latest, near-lethal mission abroad, smuggler Merrick Tremayne is tapped by the East India Company to acquire cinchona tree cuttings from Peru, thus breaking the country's monopoly on quinine. But Merrick's expedition to the Andes soon takes a unexpected turn. Although the plot of The Bedlam Stacks is not directly connected to the events of The Watchmaker of Filigree Street, readers can expect brief cameo appearances from some of the previous novel's characters. -- Description by Gillian Speace
