A string of long-lost and cursed rubies gives the title to this highly imaginative tale by Simon Raven, author of the First Born of Egypt saga. Jacquiz Helmut and Balbo Blakeney, among other eccentric characters, pursue the jewels across four countries and eight centuries. Horror, intrigue and high comedy shape the story as it races towards an unforgettable climax. 'A tour de force…Perhaps the most enjoyable and utterly readable of all this author's novels' – The Daily Telegraph 'A bounding, joyful read…Ceaselessly inventive…Seriously entertaining and entertainingly serious' – The Guardian 'Ingenious…Macabre wit, quirkish invention' – The Times
