The Sally Lockhart Mysteries Series
by Philip Pullman (Author)
When her dear father is drowned in suspicious circumstances in the South China Sea, Sally is left to fend for herself, an orphan and alone in the smoky fog of Victorian London. Though she doesn't know it, Sally is already in terrible danger. Soon the mystery and the danger will deepen but can Sally muster the bravery and wit required to survive?
A precursor to Y.S. Lee's Agency (Mary Quinn) series, Pullman's Sally Lockhart Mysteries is a thrilling historical quartet filled with mystery, suspense and intrigue.
