Publisher Description

A Whitbread Book Award–winning mystery about a young boy lost in Victorian London, pursued by bloodthirsty thieves, desperate to solve the mystery of the man his father wronged.

What is the matter with old Mr. Jones? Endless footsteps and low groans can be heard from his room in the dead of night. Only his son William knows the a terrible secret: his father betrayed his business partner, Mr. Diamond, and swindled him out of a great fortune. William resolves to go to London, find Mr. Diamond, and make amends. But the murky big city, with its sinister characters and treacherous back streets, is no place for a boy of twelve. And Mr. Diamond’s own son is not the sort of person to forgive and forget. Danger and deceit lie in wait.
