The Laws of Magic: A Novel of the Necronomicon
Horror in the of Lovecraftian Tradition! Albert Keptopolos was a genuine genius. He had doctorates in Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy, Mathematics, Philosophy and Mysticism. When he was twenty-five, the Clay Mathematics Institute of Cambridge, Massachusetts (CMI) award him a prize of one million dollars for solving one of the "Millennium Prize Problems," one of the important classic questions in mathematics that have resisted solution over the years. After receiving this prestigious and lucrative award, he abandoned mathematics to delve into atomic physics, cosmology and the occult--especially the occult. Every room in his rambling Victorian house contained shelves overflowing with obscure books. Then Professor Keptopolos disappears. Detective Martin Kopinski is assigned to the case. First he meets the woman named Lillith and then he hears of the forbidden, blasphemous book called the Necronomicon. Detective Kopinski doesn't believe in the occult--yet! From Joe Valdama, author of the Morgaine the Sorceress series, comes a remarkable novel of terror in the Lovecraftian tradition.
