Philip Pullman writes beautifully! A well researched period mystery, full of suspense and drama. Anton Lesser narrates magnificently.
Sally Lockhart is no ordinary Victorian heroine and Philip Pullman's series of four books will keep you enthralled as you follow her adventures in Victorian London and beyond. This is the third book in the series but I strongly recommend that you read the books in order (Ruby in the Smoke, Shadow in the North, Tiger in the Well and the Tin Princess) to keep the characters and plot developments in order. Each book moves at a cracking pace with the action hurrying you along yet never losing the chance to paint a convincing picture of Victorian life and the restrictions on women. Highly recommended.

Anton Lesser brings this book to life. I'll be looking out for more with him. Pullman's writing wonderful as always, lots of twists and turns.

What a great end to a brilliant trilogy! Book 2 was a bit of a struggle but this 3rd installment more than made up for it. Pullman certainly did his research into 19th century London and Lesser is simply an extraordinary storyteller. His narrative of the confusion in the police station with Con and Tony, in the last chapter, is laughably glorious!
