Sie sind ein Team wider Willen. Aber gemeinsam unschlagbar! »Dämonen sind überaus heimtückisch. Sie fallen dir in den Rücken, sobald sich ihnen auch nur die geringste Gelegenheit dazu bietet. Hast du verstanden?« Und ob Nathanael verstanden hat. Er weiß genau, was es mit der Macht von Dämonen auf sich hat. Aus diesem Grund hat er sich ja für Bartimäus entschieden, den 5.000 Jahre alten, ebenso scharfsinnigen wie spitzzüngigen Dschinn. Nathanael braucht einen mächtigen Mitspieler für seinen Plan, denn er will sich rächen! Der Auftrag an Bartimäus ist klar: Er soll das Amulett von Samarkand stehlen, das im Besitz von Simon Lovelace ist. Doch Nathanael hat keine Ahnung, wie gefährlich dieses Amulett ist. Bevor er und Bartimäus sich versehen, geraten sie in einen reißenden Strudel mörderisch-magischer Intrigen.
