Contents An unexpected lunar eclipse. A poisonous fog that cripples the capital. Statues that weep blood. As the catalogue of calamities mount, fear and paranoia provoke rumours of terrorist attacks. But from whom? History professor Juliet Harrington is an authority on sixteenth-century mysticism and a long-time believer in the existence of the Almanac of Forbidden Wisdom, a potent spellbook legend insists was compiled in that period by a cabal of powerful occultists. Its magic is summoned though only at disastrous cost, signalled by The Auguries. Juliet is convinced that the recent plague of disasters means someone reckless is using the book--and she has little time left to stop them.
Summary "The sudden sinking of a Thames passenger craft with no survivors is seen simply as freak, unexplained accident. But when the male statues of London start crying blood and a choking fog descends causing a passenger plane to crash into the Thames Barrier, the country panics. Is London under a terrorist attack - or is something else at work? Professor Juliet Harrington suspects these unexplained incidents are related to 'The Almanac of Forbidden Wisdom', a book said to contain the most potent charms and curses. These events are referred to as The Auguries, which signal the world being out of balance. With each spell cast the world becomes more unstable, and Juliet is in a race against time to find who has the book and how to counteract the spells before it is too late."--Publisher's description.
