Book Description:

Meister Zacharius ist ein Uhrmacher in Genf und berühmt für die Genauigkeit seiner Uhren. Eines Tages beginnen seine Uhren falsch zu gehen und mehr und mehr von ihnen bleiben ganz stehen. Trotz aller Mühe gelingt es ihm nicht, die Uhren wieder in Gang zu setzen oder die Ursache des Defekts zu finden. Gleichzeitig wird er ernsthaft krank und auch sein Verstand und seine Seele geraten aus dem Gleichgewicht. Es scheint ein Zusammenhang zwischen den stehengebliebenen Uhren und seiner Lebenszeit zu bestehen.
