Set in London, Sir Giles, the nefarious cousin of The Chief Justice of England, Lord Arglay, has obtained by not entirely fair means the ancient gold Crown of King Solomon the Wise. The White Stone of the Tetragrammaton, embedded in the crown, was the key to his wisdom and riches and fame. Sir Giles means to research it and unlock its powers, but lacking the courage to take all the risks himself, he must include others in his plans. Made of the First Matter from the Garden of Eden, the Stone's power grows with the experience of the user and can heal all sicknesses, allow the user to travel in time, in addition to seeing the minds of others. This provoking supernatural thriller shows Williams at his very best.Hide synopsis
