Im Hafen von Antwerpen entweicht ein Tier aus einem Frachtcontainer. Augenzeugen beschreiben es als weiss, und es hat ein Horn mitten auf der Stirn...
Den Plot des Romans finde ich faszinierend, und er ist auch gut geschrieben. Der Autor übertreibt es für meinen Geschmack allerdings mit seiner Liebe für Details, so dass durch die genauen Beschreibungen der Umstände oder auch einfacher Gegenstände oft der Schwung aus der Geschichte genommen wird. So empfand ich das Buch streckenweise als langatmig und es fiel mir schwer, den Faden nicht zu verlieren. Im zweiten Teil nimmt die Handlung dann an Schwung zu. Alles in allem war dieses Buch nach meinem Geschmack, eine gelungene Mischung zwischen Verschwörung und Fantasy. ( )

Book description
What if you knew the location of the Garden of Eden? To what lengths would you go to protect it?

Imagine a lost world where animals have been sheltered from extinction since the Ice Age — a "Noah's Ark" threatened by poachers.

In Chateau Beyond Time, celebrated explorer, author and filmmaker Michael Tobias draws us into an exquisite kingdom — a sublime refuge with fiercely protected surroundings. This chateau, nestled within an unexpected wilderness in the heart of France, has only been known to artists, philosophers and kings — the exclusive members of a secret society of guardians dating back to the dawn of humanity.

Deputy Director of the Interpol Wildlife Secretariat Jean-Baptiste Simon is awakened by a phone call in the middle of the night — a one-horned animal has escaped from smugglers on the docks of Antwerp. The next day, an elderly museum gardener is murdered, a horn thrust through his throat. Even more baffling is the nature of the horn. Its DNA profile leaves the forensic team at an utter loss. Meanwhile in London, Martin Olivier, a specialist dealing in many of England's finest estates, with his wife Margaret, a precocious art historian and museum curator, is befuddled by an urgent message from an eccentric uncle, James, whom Martin hasn't seen in years. Martin must come at once to a place he had always been told was simply a remote family farm. He is given a series of cryptic instructions, including a map delivered by a falcon. Martin and Margaret will soon discover that the Olivier family is heir to an ancient lineage of stewardship, and they are plunged into a desperate race to save nothing less than the original Arcadia.
