Sally Lockhart, trying to put her troubled past behind her after her fiancé’s death, has settled into a comfortable life with her daughter, Harriet, her career, and her London friends. But her world comes crashing down around her when a complete stranger claims to be both her husband and Harriet’s father, casting doubt on her spotless reputation.

Seeking the answers to this terrible dilemma, Sally realizes with growing horror that there is a guiding hand behind all this deceit; someone who hates her so passionately that he has devoted years to bringing about her ruin. She has no choice but to escape with her child into the crime-ridden slums of London’s East End. Suddenly it isn’t only Sally’s reputation that is in danger.

Quotes & Awards

  • A suspenseful, textured mystery. Especially fine is his use of details--19th-century London comes alive here. Remarkable, too, is the way Pullman interweaves subplots...those who have enjoyed Sally's adventures before, as well as those new to the series, will find this a fascinating read, pulsing with life.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grace | 2/20/2014

    " Good finish to the series. Could have used a bit of editing though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J.T. Wilson | 2/19/2014

    " A bit preachy at the end (particularly with the Dan Goldberg character, righteous socialist journalist etc) but a quality yarn nonetheless from Pullman. This is the third in the Sally Lockhart series though, and I hadn't read the previous two, so I admit that I came into the series all wrong. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susanna Nocchi | 2/8/2014

    " Brilliant! Interesting, fun, exciting. It is a really good book for everyone, the young and the less so. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan Bocook | 1/30/2014

    " Hope there are more of Sally Lockheart! Great books! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emese | 1/30/2014

    " Having recently finished the first two books, this felt heavy handed and predictable. The "issues" outweighed the plot, also felt preachy at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 1/23/2014

    " Lovely, lovely little book. A satifying end to a well written, page turning, historical fiction mystery series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kit | 1/21/2014

    " Pullman wows again. I think I prefer these books to the Dark Materials series on the whole. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darshan Elena | 1/19/2014

    " Good stuff! Love Pullman's take on Victorian England's habits, norms, & quirks. I am fond of his understanding of social hierarchies of gender, religion, and culture. Pullman has an eye for social nuance! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyn | 1/18/2014

    " I think it would be enjoyable to re-read, looking for all the little details and clues, and character development. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 1/12/2014

    " Yay for history, the plight of women, Jews, and socialism! I liked the social commentary in this book more than the plot itself, which was kind of convoluted and frustratingly obvious. Time to shelve this trilogy for another several years before revisiting it again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsay | 9/20/2013

    " If you want to have your character do a lot of really stupid things, please don't perpetually describe her as intelligent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethany | 10/4/2012

    " I have enjoyed this series a lot, perhaps more than His Dark Materials. The characters are liekable and the plot is intriguing. I also think that the time period description is fairly realistic and I would definitely be encouraged to read more by Philip Pullman. "

    " I couldn't put it down. . . "

    " Should come with a donation envelope to Equality Now and a coupon for a free kickboxing lesson, as you'll have some pent-up anger to work out by the end... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannah | 4/13/2012

    " This one went a bit long in places. Otherwise really fun reading, a great adventure with an excellent, strong, fun female protagonist. "

    " I like the first sentence of the goodreads summary: "A terrifying thriller set in Victorian London." This is definitely not a children's book, and I have no idea why the library didn't have it in the adult fiction section where it belongs. "
