Product description

If you’ve not yet met Sally Lockhart, prepare to be bowled over. This beautiful, smart sixteen-year-old can ride like a Cossack and shoot like a demon. And now she’s braving terrible danger to hunt down her father’s killer! Her journey will take her from the grimy streets of London to a Maharajah’s Indian palace and the decadent opium dens of China. Can she unravel the rich and colourful mystery of a priceless jewel soaked in blood? From the glittering talent of Philip Pullman, the author of Northern Lights, this gripping yarn has left us all bedazzled.
