‘A consummate performance…virtuoso’ Guardian

A fascinating, unusual and seductive historical novel by the bestselling author of The Long Firm.

In a Parisian restaurant, Aleister Crowley, the notorious occultist, chances on Major-General Sir Hector Macdonald: once one of the greatest heroes of the British Empire, now facing ruin in a shocking scandal – and vulnerable to Crowley’s curious offer of help. An extraordinary night of transgression and revelation ensues . . .

Probing beneath the surface of Victorian conformity, this is an enthralling tale of imperialism, sexuality and the nature of belief, which captures a world on the brink of a brutal new era.
