The Ruby in the Smoke (A Sally Lockhart Mystery)
The Ruby in the Smoke - A Sally Lockhart Mystery Author:Philip Pullman ?BEWARE THE SEVEN blessings . . . ? When she first utters these words, 16-year-old Sally Lockhart doesn?t know their meaning. But when an employee of her late father hears them, he dies of fear. Thus begins Sally?s terrifying journey into the seamy underworld of Victorian London, in search of clues to her father?s mysterious death.
My second Philip Pullman read, and I enjoyed this one the best so far. Didn't even know it was considered a "young adult" book when found this brand new looking book at local swap. A thorough story with engaging characters. Loved the different personalities. Actually looking forward to continuing the Sally Lockhart trilogy.
