May 9, 1182. Ten days before the consecration of the High Altar of Notre Dame, ritually butchered bodies are discovered in Paris. Provost’s Special Agent Nicolas Maçon is thrust into a labyrinth of crime and art, of scientific alchemy and Arabian magic. His hunt takes him through brothels and inns, from the Templar Commandery to the vast building site of Notre Dame. But finding the killer is just the beginning of this rigorous and accurately detailed thriller.
