Summary
Rich in period detail and memorable characters, Dark matter opens in 1696 in the Tower of London, where the headstrong young gentleman Christopher Ellis and his master, Sir Isaac Newton, renowned scientist and Warden of the Royal Mint, join forces. Newton has accepted an appointment from the King and Parliament to investigate and prosecute counterfeiters whose false coins threaten to bring down the war-weakened British economy. But Ellis and Newton discover that the counterfeiting is only a small part of a much more sinister plot involving a conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of power and the nobility, threatening not just the collapse of the economy but widespread anarchy and bloodshed. A string of mysterious murders, coded documents, and alchemical symbols leads them on a perilous journey
