Description

The first book in Philip Pullman's classic SALLY LOCKHART quartet
in a beautiful new edition to celebrate the 30 year anniversary.


Soon after Sally Lockhart's father drowns at sea, she receives an
anonymous letter. The dire warning it contains makes a man die of
fear at her feet. Determined to discover the truth about her father's
death, Sally is plunged into a terrifying mystery in the dark
heart of Victorian London, at the centre of which lies a deadly
blood-soaked jewel. Philip Pullman's ever-popular, action-packed
Victorian melodramas are rejacketed for the bicentenary of Charles
Dickens in 2012.
