When Daniel Pearse's mother dies, he is brought under the guidance of the AMO: the Alliance of Magicians and Outlaws. It is an introduction to a world of revenge, revolution and mind-bending chemicals, where anarchists, alchemists and high-stake gamblers exist. It is also a place in which magic and murder are the norm.
So Daniel begins a road-trip across America, an extraordinary quest for knowledge and understanding, for a six-pound spherical diamond and for an answer to the question of who killed his mother.
Subtitled 'An Alchemical Pot-Boiler', Stone Junction is an unforgettable outlaw classic.
