But it is to her that the other students turn when one is charged with the murder of his rich uncle, a reputed alchemist. She quickly discovers that the murder (and a second related murder) had their roots far away on the island of Ibiza eighteen years before, and involve not only alchemy and the tarot and (of course, with Mariana there) witchcraft (one of the witches, known as La Fille dOr, turns out to have been for years the secret mistress of Charles VI, King of France), but also a one-armed Albanian king of the Paris underworld, and such well-known historical figures as Christine de Pisan (then a girl of thirteen), and Nicolas Flamel, the alchemist.
