The Shadow in the North (Sally Lockhart Mysteries)

The Shadow in the North (Sally Lockhart Mysteries) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“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 Sallys enemies have their way, she wont 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.

Synopsis:

In search of clues to the mystery of her father's death, 16-year-old Sally Lockhart ventures into the shadowy underworld of Victorian London. Pursued by villains at every turn, the intrepid Sally finally uncovers two dark mysteries--and realizes that she herself is the key to both.

In Dickensian fashion, Pullman tells the story of 16-year-old Sally Lockhart, who becomes involved in a deadly web of events as she searches for a mysterious ruby. The novel is a page turner, peopled with despicable hags, forthright heroes, and children living on the underbelly of 19th-century London. The story's events are exciting, with involved plotting. Settings and characterizations are exquisitely drawn. The first entry in a planned trilogy.--(starred) Booklist. Reading level: 6.7.

From the Paperback edition.
