Elixir for Joan of Arc

детективы книги Натальи Солнцевой Эликсир для Жанны д`АркHandsome cottage, almost a family manor, a happy couple, a stable full of pedigreed horses, a library full of ancient books… A real idyl, but…

In the cellar under the cottage, protected by many locks, an evil monk is brewing weird potions. Possibly he is practicing witchcraft together with the host… Meanwhile several girls are missing in the vicinity, and someone is bringing wreaths to the ice-covered tree…
What is happening in that weird little world? Only Gloria will be able to tell. Only she can connect the fire which burned Joan of Arc, with the death the girl who failed to get away from the burning house.

What happened with Joan of Arc in reality after she was convicted to be burned? Was Gilles de Rais a murderer or just the man who lost his love and desperately sought the way to meet again? It is unlikely that people would ever find exact answers to these questions. There will always be people who are not satisfied with the answers…
Meanwhile, Roman Lavrov quits the long-hated job and goes to spend the vacation in the recreation center, but only to find a new job waiting for him – to make love to Katya, wife of a wealthy man who was first a good husband for her, but then engaged in some suspicious “magical” activities striving to find the recipe of eternal life. The situation is dangerous for Katya, and her father is naturally worried – several young girls are missing in the vicinity. Were they killed in her husband’s house? What is Sergey (Katya’s husband) actually doing? Will Lavrov be able to dispel the charm and bring Katya to reality?
The tasks proves difficult for Lavrov – though Katya is attacted, he cannot forget Gloria, and the crimes interest him more than the beautiful young woman. But he cannot be sure that Sergey and the mysterious “monk” who is working on the potions in the cellar are murderers. And Gloria takes the scene again! Her intuition helps her find the graves of both Sergey’s lost lover and the missing girls, and to connect the modern story with the mysterious death of Joan of Arc…
