Description

A stranger is watching. . . . It's 1881, and life has been good to Sally Lockhart. Unlike most Victorian women, Sally is completely independent, with her own successful business and a comfortable home for her young daughter, Harriet. But Sally's whole world is about to collapse. A stranger emerges, claiming to be both her husband and Harriet's father and threatening all that she has-her business, her child, her very sanity. Sally realizes with growing horror that there is a guiding hand behind this deceit: someone who hates her so passionately that he has devoted years to bringing about her ruin. And there's only one man that could possibly be. . . . From the award-winning author of His Dark Materials comes a richly layered adventure of suspicion and intrigue-and the third acclaimed Sally Lockhart mystery.show more

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."show more
