Overview

When a newspaper report of a medical miracle catches Matt's eye, he and India go in search of Dr. Hale in the hope he is more magical doctor than miracle worker and can lead them to Chronos. But Hale turns out to be an apothecary magician keen to educate the public about magic.

Their disappointment at not finding Chronos is soon forgotten when Hale is murdered, and Matt becomes a suspect. With Matt's nemesis Sheriff Payne influencing the investigating detective, India and Matt know they must find the real killer, or risk his freedom, and ultimately his life. Time is running out as they hunt for a killer capable of turning medicine into poison with a magic spell, as well as continue the search for Chronos. A search that must end in success before Matt's malfunctioning watch stops altogether.

Getting tired of the wishy washiness of the Miss Steele. I understand English society at that time but 3 books in and only 1 kiss!!!. At least we've met the famous watchmaker that was dragging on also. Want to see this progress a bit faster, I find myself skimming. Will give the next book one more try.

Amazing writing. I don't usually read a series with more than 3 or 4 books. I'm already invested so I will read the rest of this series but it's dragging.

Both entertaining and intelligent! I love the suspense in each installment and find myself quickly flipping through pages and reading every chance I get like I used to before life got in the way. Delighted to have stumbled upon such an amazing series, able to capture my attention and keep me intrigued.
