The price of immortality...

Two thousand years ago, there lived a man who sold some valuable information for a fee of thirty silver coins. His name was Judas Iscariot and he is no longer with us. The coins, however, still exist - and still hold an elusive power over all who claim them...

Like Andrew Vanbergen, whose attempts at innkeeping bring in stranger business than he ever expected.

And Aunt Naomi, whose most prized family heirloom is a silver spoon - with a curiously ancient-looking engraving.

And especially old Mr Pennyman, who is only five silver coins short of immortality.

"In Blaylock's contemporary fantasy, the fate of the world falls into the hands of a daydreaming eccentric named Andrew Vanbergen. This quick-tempered Californian is muddling through the conversion of his rambling home into an inn and cafe when he unwittingly becomes one of the Caretakers who have kept the world safe for nearly two millennia. The danger is that someone like Andrew's mysterious guest Jules Pennyman will gather together Judas Iscariot's original 30 pieces of silver, thereby summoning up an apocalyptic magic. Against a lyric vision of the Southern California coast, cosmic conspiracy theories bump heads in a gleeful farce to produce another strange and wonderful book from the idiosyncratic author of Homunculus and Land of Dreams." -- Publishers Weekly
