Melchior - The Apothecary

When a murderer is loose in town, the town is sick.


It’s time to call the apothecary. Melchior Wakenstede is a clever and curious apothecary who, in addition to healing the sick, solves the mysteries that are upsetting his town. In a medieval world where people look for signs from God or the Devil, everything the Melchior does appears truly magical. Some even believe that Melchiors’ detective skills speak with the dead! It turns out his “secret weapon” is more about being able to notice treacherous details, rather than understanding what little information people need before they reveal
all sorts of valuable information ...
