The second book in Philip Pullman's classic SALLY LOCKHART quartet
in a beautiful new edition.
Sally Lockhart is twenty-two, and running her own financial consultancy
- a thoroughly modern woman in a world of pompous men - but
she's about to be thrown headlong into a vicious web of murder,
mystery and pure evil. When a client's lost investment appears suspicious,
Sally investigates. Soon she is ensnared in a whirl of
high-society danger and deceit, which can lead her in only one direction
- to the terrifying secret of the Shadow in the North.
