The search for a cure for mysterious illnesses is performed with style by Natalie Gold. Starting out slowly and carefully, Gold soon relaxes and joins the fun as Sarah Weston, a musicologist, searches Vienna and Prague for a cure to the wasting illness that has felled her friend, Pollina. Using alchemy, magic, and science, the immortal dwarf Nicolas Pertusato helps Sarah in her quest. With a dozen major characters, a little time travel, ghosts, and automatons, Sarah and friend travel around Eastern Europe, searching out artifacts in museums that hold clues to a cure. Gold's staid narration is interspersed with breathless chase and sex scenes. Suspend your disbelief and listen to Gold tell Flyte's convoluted tale.
