Master counterfeiter, Damian Lancaster, has one goal: get rich and retire by his thirtieth birthday. But when a routine drop goes wrong, Damian is rescued from gangsters by Nathalie Jevali, the woman who has haunted his nightmares all his life.
And she has dreamed of him as well.
Plunged into a mysterious world of occultists, alchemists, magicians, and scholars, pursued by international criminals, Damian and Nathalie must learn to trust each other if they hope to solve the mystery that unites them. Their only clues are an obscure fifteenth century wedding invitation, their shared recurring dreams and two words: Lapis exillis. A code name for the philosopher’s stone.
