About the book
We tend to underestimate the power of words. They are such an everyday and inseparable tool of our human nature that we hardly realize how a single one of them can turn our fate around…
David Salas is the youngest lecturer in Linguistics at Trinity College Dublin. He has just finished his dissertation and is going on vacation in Madrid. There he has a meeting with his grandfather's old friend - Victoria Goodman.
Lady Goodman is a famous writer and runs courses for people tempted by literature. Their task is to search the pages of old books for clues to the whereabouts of the Holy Grail. However, they do not suspect how dangerous their occupation is and what consequences it can have. Until one of them is found dead.
David embarks on unraveling the mystery together with Paula - Lady Goodman's beautiful assistant. Next up are Romanesque churches nestled in the Pyrenees, art collections in Barcelona, ancient manuscripts and inexplicable codes carved into stone…
All of them intertwine in a plot full of intrigues that make us wonder who lights the invisible fire in our souls.
