A magician’s young apprentice, Nathaniel, summons the irascible 5,000-year-old djinn, Bartimaeus, to do his bidding. Nathaniel has an interesting assignment for Bartimaeus: he must steal the powerful Amulet of Samarkand from Simon Lovelace, a master magician of unrivalled ruthlessness and ambition. The only problem is Bartimaeus couldn’t care less for what his current master really wants, only that he has a job to complete (and survive) before he can return to “The Other Place” again… that and perhaps get even with the annoying little brat who summoned him if he gets the chance.
