"A second brilliant bauble, perhaps more foreboding and terrifying than "The Ruby in the Smoke."" -"Publisher's Weekly"
Will the sea give up its dead?
The year is 1878, and the spirited Sally Lockhart, once again defying Victorian sensibilities, has gone into business for herself. When one of her clients loses a large sum of money in the unexpected collapse of a British shipping firm, Sally sets out to investigate. But as she delves deeper into the identity of the wealthy and elusive industrialist who owns the doomed company, she uncovers a plot so diabolical that it could eventually subvert the entire civilized world-and if Sally's enemies have their way, she won't live long enough to see it happen.
Philip Pullman, author of the award-winning His Dark Materials, continues the nerve-shattering story of his canny and courageous heroine in this second Sally Lockhart mystery.

Review quote

"A rip-roaring adventure story filled with cutthroat villains, dastardly deeds, sleazy opium dens, filthy London slums, and a delightful heroine...Splendid descriptions, plot twists and turns, and understated humor engage readers in this tale of murder, mayhem, and mystery."--School Library Journal (starred review) "From the Paperback edition."
