PoznámkaObal: soft, Stav: 5 / 5, he is to track down a certain ancient and heretical manuscript, The Labyrinth of the World, missing fr_om her collection and identifiable by her father's ex libris. Withholding much relevant informationAsuch as the reasons that her husband and father were murderedAshe offers him a sum greater than his yearly income, but gives no reason other than that she wishes the collection undiminished. When he accepts the job, Inchbold is drawn into a clandestine, centuries - old battle over the manuscriptAhis every move, it seems, dictated by some unseen hand. King expertly leads his protagonist through an endless labyrinth of clues, discoveries and dangers, all the while expertly detailing 17th - century Europe's struggles over religion and knowledge. He interweaves a subplot describing the manuscript's journey fr_om Prague to Pontifex Hall that involves theft, flight and murder. The world of the novel is satisfyingly complete, fr_om its ornate syntax and vocabulary to the Dickensian names of its characters (Phineas Greenleaf, Dr. Pickvance, Nat Crumb) ; its beleaguered, likable narrator is fully developed; and its fast - paced action is intricately conceived.
