Series: Sally Lockhart Mysteries
The year is 1878, and the spirited Sally Lockhart, once again
defying Victorian sensibilities, has gone into business for herself. When
one of her clients loses a large sum of money in the unexpected collapse of
a British shipping firm, Sally sets out to investigate. But as she delves
deeper into the identity of the wealthy and elusive industrialist who owns
the doomed company, she uncovers a plot so diabolical that it could
eventually destroy the entire civilized world - and if Sally's enemies have
their way, she won't live long enough to see it happen.
