Finished Reading The Alchemist’s Pursuit

Finished reading The Alchemist’s Pursuit by Dave Duncan. The Alchemist’s Pursuit is the third book in Dave Duncan’s Alchemist’s series, a Venetian fantasy mystery. In this book Alfeo Zeno, apprentice to Nostradamus, is in search of a killer who’s targeting Venice’s prostitutes. After three women are strangled a courtesan and friend of Alfeo, Donna Violetta Vitale, begs Nostradamus to find the killer and prevent the next death. Alfeo barely escapes the unseen murderer after the fourth victim is stabbed. Alfeo and Nostradamus must rely on more than clairvoyance to save Violetta and unmask the killer.

I really enjoyed the Alchemist’s series. Duncan created an amazing mix of magic and history along with an entertaining set of characters. The series made me want to read some of Dave Duncan’s other books.

I began programming in C++ when I was in college. Odd for a business major, but hey I am a Dork. After college I got a job as System Administrator. As a System Administrator I was in charge of web administration. My journey as a PHP web developer had begun. Since that time I have gained an in depth knowledge of CSS, Javascript, XML and MySQL. With changes and advances to technology I have also began learning AJAX. I started Blue Fire Development to do freelance work in my spare time.
