Abstract:

In 1696, young Christopher Ellis is sent to the Tower of London, but not as a prisoner ... he arrives at the Tower as assistant to the renowned scientist Sir Isaac Newton. Newton is Warden of the Royal Mint, which resides within the Tower walls, and he has accepted an appointment to investigate and prosecute counterfeiters whose false coins threaten to bring down the shaky, war-weakened economy. While investigating, they come upon a mysterious coded message on the body of a man killed in the Lion Tower, as well as alchemical symbols that indicate this was more than a random murder. As their pursuit of the counterfeiters takes them from the madhouse of Bedlam to the squalid confines of Newgate prison and back to the Tower itself, Newton and Ellis discover that the counterfeiting is only a small part of a larger, more dangerous plot, one that reaches to the highest echelons of power and nobility and threatens much more than the collapse of the economy.
