FOR THE FIRST TIME—ALL OF
LORD DARCY'S AMAZING ADVENTURES
IN ONE HUGE VOLUME
Welcome to a world . . . where Richard the Lion-Hearted did not die in the year 1199, but went on to found the mightiest and most stable empire in history . . . where the laws of Extra-Sensory Perception (ESP) have been codified, but those of physics remain unsuspected ... where magic is a science, and science is an art.
Meet the greatest detective of all time, Lord Darcy, Chief Investigator for the Duke of Normandy, and his assistant, Master Sorcerer Scan O'Lochlainn. In a world where crime and the occult walk hand in hand, a world of murder and magic, they combine occult skills and uncanny powers of deduction to bring criminals to the King's Justice and thwart those who plot against the Realm.
It's urban fantasy by gaslight in a world where magic is an everyday occurrence, and no matter whether murder is committed by magic most foul or by more mundane means, crime still does not pay—as long as Lord Darcy is on the case.
|Publisher's Note: Parts of Lord Darcy were published separately as Too Many Magicians, Murder and Magic, and Lord Darcy Investigates. This is the first complete Lord Darcy.
"He has combined the best of the fantasy and detective genres— and made them work as science fiction."
—Marion Zimmer Bradley
"I cannot count the number of times I have read Too Many Magicians [included in Lord Darcy]—each time with the same pleasure."
"Randall Garrett's most satisfying and enduring literary accomplishment is the Lord Darcy series."
"Garrett's best work . . . ingenious, and the world Lord Darcy inhabits is rich and believable."
