Description:
It is 1866, and Walter Moody has come to make his fortune upon the New Zealand goldfields. On arrival, he stumbles across a tense gathering of twelve local men, who have met in secret to discuss a series of unsolved crimes. A wealthy man has vanished, a whore has tried to end her life, and an enormous fortune has been discovered in the home of a luckless drunk. Moody is soon drawn into the mystery: a network of fates and fortunes that is as complex and exquisitely patterned as the night sky.
New Zealand History 1853-1876 Fiction.

This mighty tome may put you off with its astrological links on the frontispiece/character list. Don't let it. You can iggnore it for a wonderful absorbing read. The pace and complexity of the story and wonderful characterisation of a story set in New Zealand's Goldrush. Thrilling murder mystery. A great read.
