Review: Life is hard for apprentice Christopher Rowe, but Master Apothecary Blackthorn does not beat him, which is rare in the 1600s. Christopher studies potions, medicines, codes, and cyphers. When his master is killed, Christopher and his loyal friend set out to discover who is killing all the apothecaries and why. Renaissance England comes to life while presages of modern science, explosives, and medicine mingle with mystery, danger and action.
