Death of an Alchemist by Mary Lawrence
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
1543 London, and Bianca Goddard concocts remedies for the sick, while alchemist Ferris Stannum has found the elixir for immortality.
But the alchemist is found dead and she needs the elixir to save her husband John from a sickness. Solving a series of murders can she also save her husband.
For me the story dragged at the inclusion of the alchemy 'knowledge', and I didn't feel it was necessary to the story.
Although the book is the second in the series it was not necessary to read the first.
