The Elephant Keeper's Children

Author(s): Peter Hoeg

Second Hand

Peter and Tilte are trying to track down two notorious offenders: their parents. They are the minister and the organist, respectively, of the only church on a tiny island. Known for creating cheap miracles to strengthen the congregation's faith, they have disappeared before. But this time Peter and Tilte suspect they are up to mischief on a far greater scale. When they learn that scientific and religious leaders from around the world are assembling in Copenhagen for a conference, their suspicions are confirmed. Peter and Tilte won't leave a stone unturned in the quest to find their parents, unearthing conspiracies, terrorist plots and much more along the way.
