Deep in uncharted Peru, the holy town of Bedlam stands at the edge of a forest. The shrine statues move, and anyone who crosses the border dies. But somewhere inside are valuable cinchona trees whose bark yields quinine: the only known treatment for malaria. An astonishing historical novel set in the shadowy, magical forests of South America. The new novel from the author of the international bestseller "The Watchmaker of Filigree Street".
