Murder, revolution and secrets of a lost past threaten a vast underground city, in the complete collection of the Recoletta novels. Collects The Buried Life, Cities and Thrones, and The Song of the Dead in a single volume. The gaslight and shadows of the underground city of Recoletta hide secrets and lies. When Inspector Liesl Malone investigates the murder of a renowned historian, she finds herself stonewalled by Recoletta's top-secret historical research facility. When a second high-profile murder threatens the very fabric of city society, Malone and her rookie partner must tread carefully, lest they fall victim to not only the criminals they seek, but the government which purports to protect them. Knowledge is power, and power must be preserved at all costs The dark, forbidden knowledge of how the city came to be founded has been released into the world for all to read, and now someone must pay. Inspector Liesl Malone is on her toes, trying to keep the peace, and Arnault's spy ring is more active than ever. Has the city's increased access to knowledge put the citizens in even more danger? Allegiances change, long-held beliefs are adjusted, and things are about to get messy. The Library Accord has finally been signed by Recoletta and its neighbours, but the fight for power continues. A desperate attempt to save the spymaster Arnault from execution leads to Malone's arrest and Jane's escape. They must pursue each other across the sea to discover a culture that has held together over the centuries. There they will finally learn the truths about the Catastrophe that drove their civilization underground. File Under: Fantasy
