Enter an exciting world full of fantasy, action, and mystery in Michael Malik's intriguing debut, Ghost Thief. Readers will get lost in this exciting tale that pits one skeptic detective against an enemy who knows no bounds.
Benjamin Crisp, a detective constable in Scotland Yard's art and antiques division, is confused when he receives a rare and valuable atlas from his great-uncle Albert and sets off to learn Albert's intention.
His great-uncle soon reveals that he is a member of an alchemist society that for centuries has used an element called ambrosium to absorb the thoughts of history's most celebrated figures into special busts, essentially turning them into ghosts.
The bust of Dr. John Dee has gone missing, however, and it is up to Crisp to track it down. But the discovery of the bust brings bigger problems when Dee reveals a horrifying secret: during his lifetime, he helped discover the language of angels-a fact that had remained hidden until now.
When an unknown nemesis discovers the secret and banishes all the angels from Earth, the delicate balance that exists between good and evil is destroyed. Can Crisp uncover the riddle of the atlas and battle the forces of darkness before it's too late?
