An astonishing historical novel set in the shadowy, magical forests of South America, which draws on the captivating world of the international bestseller The Watchmaker of Filigree Street

Deep in uncharted Peru, the holy town of Bedlam stands at the edge of a forest. The shrine statues move, and anyone who crosses the border dies. But somewhere inside are cinchona trees, whose bark yields quinine: the only known treatment for malaria.

By 1859, on the other side of the Pacific, the hunt for a reliable source of quinine is critical and the India office coerces injured expeditionary Merrick Tremayne into one final mission to Bedlam.

As Merrick travels into hostile territory, he discovers a legacy which will prove more dangerous and valuable than the India Office could ever have imagined.
