Product Description

A dark tale of magic, fear, evil – and a master puppeteer whose spooky creations look strangely alive. Gaspare Grisini is famous for his incredibly realistic stringed puppets. Clara Wintermute, the child of a wealthy doctor, is so spellbound by Grisini’s act that she invites him to perform at her birthday party. But when Clara – whose life is shadowed by grief, guilt and secrets – vanishes that very night, suspicion falls upon the puppeteer. Battling sorcery and evil, two orphan girls must solve this twisted crime…
