Summary
When the person he loves most dies in tragic circumstances, the mysterious protagonist of 'The Map of Chaos' does all he can to speak to her one last time and confess the secret he didn't dare tell her while she was alive. A session with the most renowned medium of all time seems to offer the only solution, but the experience unleashes terrible forces that bring the world to the brink of disaster. Salvation can only be found in 'The Map of Chaos, ' an obscure book that he is desperate to find. In his search, he is given invaluable help by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Lewis Carroll, and of course by H.G. Wells, whose Invisible Man seems to have escaped from the pages of his famous novel to sow terror among mankind. They alone can discover the means to save the world and to find the path that will reunite the lovers separated by death. Proving once again that he is 'a master of ingenious plotting' ('Kirkus Reviews'), Flix J. Palma brings together a cast of real and imagined literary characters in Victorian-Age London when spiritualism is at its height. 'The Map of Chaos' is a spellbinding adventure which mixes impossible loves, nonstop action, real ghosts, and fake mediums in an explosive cocktail that is sure to captivate readers all over the world
