Tongue of Knowledge - Ian Watson & Andy West
by Ian Watson
Supported by Assassins, the Syrian doctor struggles long in Ethiopia to control plague and preserve it as a weapon. Abigail finds herself robbing medieval tombs in Provence and Spain, hunting for the doctor´s mystical waters of death and of life. Betrayed and almost killed, she and her journalist companion Paul are saved by an American agent, as a modern-day Assassin begins to infect the world.
