This is a mystery novel in two parts, published as part of the New Century Library set. Memoirs of a Physician (sometimes titled Joseph Balsamo) introduces the character Balsamo (based on the historical occultist Cagliostro), whose adventures are recounted in several additional novels, including The Queen's Necklace.
