The Invention of Fire

Bruce Holsinger

Medieval poet and fixer John Gower returns in Holsinger's (A Burnable Book, 2014) second mystery. In 14th-century London, the bodies of sixteen unknown men are found in a privy. The men's wounds--ragged holes created by an unknown object--are unlike anything the Sheriff of London has ever seen. Gower, asked to help by the Sheriff, believes the men may have been used in an experiment--a test for a fearsome new weapon his informants call the "handgonne." With the assistance of his friend Geoffrey Chaucer, Gower searches for the person responsible for commissioning this terrible new weapon. A colorful and riveting mystery.
