When Matthew Palmer inherits an old house in Clerkenwell, he feels himself to have become a part of its past. Compelled to probe its mysteries, he discovers to his horror and curiosity that the previous owner was a practitioner of black magic. 

As he continues his research, Matthew learns of the famous sixteenth-century sorcerer and astrologer, John Dee. A great philosopher and magician, Doctor Dee believed in the possibility of communication with spirits. Drawn into the mystery of his alchemical experiments, Matthew becomes aware of the forces awakening about him. When he learns of the possible existence of an ancient city buried beneath the ground and of the everlasting creature known as the homunculus, he is led to the fantastic truth about his father and about himself...
