The Chinese Alchemist



Lyn Hamilton

The Chinese Alchemist: An Archaeological Mystery

Toronto antique dealer Lara McClintoch is asked by a friend to purchase a silver box dating to eighth century T'ang dynasty China. The extremely valuable box contains an alchemical formula for the elixir of immortality. Minutes before the auction, the box is withdrawn from sale, only to reappear in China at another auction house. Lara travels to Beijing to attempt once again to purchase it. This time, the box is stolen. When a rival for the box dies mysteriously, and the man who may have stolen it is murdered, Lara travels to Xi'an to find not only the box, but to unmask a murderer.
