"Body and soul." The song. That's what London constable and
sorcerer's apprentice Peter Grant first notices when he examines
the corpse of Cyrus Wilkins, part-time jazz drummer and full-time
accountant, who dropped dead of a heart attack while playing a gig
at Soho's 606 Club. The notes of the old jazz standard are rising
from the body--a sure sign that something about the man's death was
not at all natural but instead supernatural.
Body and soul--they're also what Peter will risk as he investigates
a pattern of similar deaths in and around Soho. With the help of
his superior officer, Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Nightingale,
the last registered wizard in England, and the assistance of
beautiful jazz aficionado Simone Fitzwilliam, Peter will uncover a
deadly magical menace--one that leads right to his own doorstep and
to the squandered promise of a young jazz musician: a talented
trumpet player named Richard "Lord" Grant--otherwise known as
Peter's dear old dad.
