Alchemy: Vols 1 & 2 Combined Special Edition also available.

London ~ 1915
A sensational murder trial begins at the Old Bailey, the accused having apparently been hung for similar shocking murders, in 1895.
How had Jacob Silver escaped the hangman? Where was he, these last 20 years?
Lizzie Weston, his only surviving model, was convinced he was innocent the first time. But after the evidence against him unfolds, she’s convinced he’s guilty this time.
Jacob Silver, having unravelled an ancient recipe in the old tome: Alchemy, is convinced he is immortal, and that’s how he survived the hanging. Improving his skills over the last 20 years, he now claims he can raise the dead.
The prosecution allege he murdered five more women for their souls ~ as Alchemy, the manual of murder prescribes.
But is anything as it seems?

Early reviews from Advanced Reader Copies of Alchemy 2:


"When is a book great? When the sequel is not only as good as but better than the first! This is now well in contention to be in my Top Ten reads of 2015. I really loved the first book but always lower expectations a bit for a sequel, I should not have worried, Chris James gave me so much more than I could have hoped for. I am literally desperate now to read book three in this great series." - Maxine - Booklover Catlady - Amazon Top Reviewer
"Chris James has done it again! And this book is even better than his first. I did not want it to end. I saved it like a treat, a reward to look forward to. I enjoyed every word. This book is a masterpiece, spanning so much history as well as telling a great story. This author rivals C.J. Sansom for history and Alexandre Dumas for pace and adventure. I loved so many things about this book, but one of my favourites is Arthur Conan Doyle making an appearance and also deducing Sherlock Holmes style. - Renita D'Silva, TopSelling Author - "A Sister's Promise"
"The author, once again, weaves real people into the wonderful fiction he is creating - I especially loved the cameo by Conan Doyle! There are parts of this book that, at first glance, seem familiar to the incidents depicted within the first book but as you read on, the author has very cleverly twisted things again - more smoke and mirrors." - Kath, Amazon Book Reviewer.
