To achieve The Great Work, they said, one needed to possess the Philosophers Stone. Eldon Racozi, a mysterious businessman with a large bankroll knows what it is like to own a piece of the Stone and then run out of it. Born in Maine during the American Revolution, Racozi has used a piece he obtained through Masonic contacts to keep him alive, until today. Afraid he is dying without his stone, he becomes convinced there is still one more piece buried deep beneath a gothic cathedral in France. To retrieve it, however, he must design and dig a 250-foot tunnel under the cathedral. With the help of New York architect Brenda MacKenna, he pursues his last chance for everlasting life against final death and danger.
