Foyles Notes

The Bedlam Stacks is a dream of a novel and one of my books of the year - not only mine as it turns out. Here's my colleague Matt's recommendation: 1859. Quinine, the lifesaving treatment for malaria is dwindling. Merrick Tremayne must venture on a quest to secure a supply of this vital remedy in the distant jungles of Peru. At the town of Bedlam where saints hold sway, and statues creep and sometimes kill, Merrick finds much more than the cinchona trees he seeks. From the author of The Watchmaker of Filigree Street comes an historical novel that skims the realms of fantasy; the only description that fits is astounding.

Synopsis

Read our exclusive author interview





An astonishing historical novel set in the shadowy, magical forests of South America, which draws on the captivating world of the international bestseller The Watchmaker of Filigree Street Deep in uncharted Peru, the holy town of Bedlam stands at the edge of a forest. The shrine statues move, and anyone who crosses the border dies. But somewhere inside are cinchona trees, whose bark yields quinine: the only known treatment for malaria. On the other side of the Pacific, it is 1859 and India is ravaged by the disease. The hunt for a reliable source of quinine is critical and in its desperation, the India Office searches out its last qualified expeditionary. Struggling with a terrible injury from his last mission and the strange occurrences at his family's ruined estate, Merrick Tremayne finds himself under orders to bring back cinchona cuttings at any cost and dispatched, against his own better judgement, to Bedlam. There he meets Raphael, a priest around whom the villagers spin unsettlingly familiar stories of impossible disappearances and living stone. Gradually, he realises that Raphael is the key to a legacy left by two generations of Tremayne explorers before him, one which will prove more dangerous and valuable than the India Office could ever have imagined.
