Inhaltsangabe: When Lothair Coningsby is bequeathed an antique pack of Tarot cards, he doesn't bargain for the trouble they will cause. The terms of his inheritance mean that Lothair cannot part with the cards in life, and they are to go to the British Museum after his death. But his daughter's fiance, Henry Lee, a descendant of the Romany people, realises that Coningsby has inherited the original Greater Trumps, or Major Arcana, the most important cards in the Tarot. These cards-including the Juggler, the Hanged Man, the Falling Tower and the mysterious, unmoving Fool-were designed to represent the dance of life itself, along with a set of golden images in Henry's possession. If the two are brought together they will unleash an unknown power upon the world-and Henry is determined to gain possession of the pack. First published in 1932, The Greater Trumps is the fifth of Charles Williams's supernatural novels.
