After suffering a near-fatal snake bite while visiting Egypt, young David Lydyard finds himself experiencing strange visions and is quickly thrust into the center of the secret war of werewolves, occultists, and fallen angels in Victorian London.
It was the time of the Great Game of European powers. Spies and soldiers traded information, risking betrayal and death. Into this unsettled territory trips Amelia Peabody, intrepid heiress and would-be Egyptologist.
First of the Amelia Peabody series.
