The Thief on the Winged Horse Hardback



A dazzling mixture of crime, romance, magic and myth from the author of the bestselling The Psychology of Time Travel.The Kendricks have been making world-famous dolls for over 200 years.

Each has an emotion laid on it; a magic that can provoke bucolic bliss or consuming paranoia at a single touch. Persephone Kendrick longs to learn her ancestors' craft, but only men may know the secrets of the workshop.

So when a handsome stranger arrives claiming doll-making talent and blood ties to the family she sees a chance to grasp all she desires. But then, one night, the firm's most valuable doll is stolen.

Only someone with knowledge of magic could have taken her.

Only a Kendrick could have committed this crime...
