Scotland and Ireland 1798. Three people, two murders, one oath. Golo Eck is searching for the lost library of The Lynx, the first scientific society in Europe founded in 1603.
His friend, Fergus, is sent over to Ireland on its trail, getting embroiled in the uprising of the United Irish against English rule.
His only contact here is Greta, who works as a messenger for the United Irish; and then come the bloody battles of New Ross and Vinegar Hill.
Fergus is missing, Greta on the run. But all is not well. Someone else is on the trail of the Lynx, and when Golo's ship founders on the way to Holland Golo disappears, leaving Ruan, his ward, to fend for himself, a foreigner in a foreign land.
What secrets does the Lynx Library hold? Will Golo or Fergus be found? Will Greta get out of Ireland with her life? How will Ruan carry on the Legacy of the Lynx? A gripping adventure story with a couple of brutal murders thrown in, and a real historical background, The Legacy will have you gripped from the start.
