Book Description

2 Feb 2012 Sally Lockhart
Sally Lockhart is 25, and somebody wants to destroy her. She receives divorce papers from a man she has never met, let alone married - yet this trap is so well laid that she is powerless to prove otherwise. When custody of her precious daughter is awarded to this evil stranger, it is the beginning of a terrifying struggle in which Sally will have to fight, and kill if necessary, for the freedom of her family. Philip Pullman's ever-popular, action-packed Victorian melodramas are rejacketed for the bicentenary of Charles Dickens in 2012.

More About the Author

Philip Pullman was born in Norwich on 19th October 1946. The early part of his life was spent travelling all over the world, because his father and then his stepfather were both in the Royal Air Force. He spent part of his childhood in Australia, where he first met the wonders of comics, and grew to love Superman and Batman in particular. From the age of 11, he lived in North Wales, having moved back to Britain. It was a time when children were allowed to roam anywhere, to play in the streets, to wander over the hills, and he took full advantage of it. His English teacher, Miss Enid Jones, was a big influence on him, and he still sends her copies of his books.

After he left school he went to Exeter College, Oxford, to read English. He did a number of odd jobs for a while, and then moved back to Oxford to become a teacher. He taught at various middle schools for twelve years, and then moved to Westminster College, Oxford, to be a part-time lecturer. He taught courses on the Victorian novel and on the folk tale, and also a course examining how words and pictures fit together. He eventually left teaching in order to write full-time.

His first published novel was for adults, but he began writing for children when he was a teacher. Some of his novels were based on plays he wrote for his school pupils, such as The Ruby In The Smoke. He is best known for the award winning His Dark Materials series, consisting of Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pullman at his best 28 Oct 2012
By khoronz
Format:Paperback
The most compelling novel I have read in years. It is by turns mystifying, frightening, horrifying, moving and, finally, hopeful and joyous. Its cast of well-drawn characters, especially the courageous Sally Lockhart and the Jewish socialist Daniel Goldberg, is unforgettable and its insight into the lives of the dispossessed of 1880s London is imbued with deep understanding and compassion. I have read with pleasure several of Pullman's novels but none has left such a powerful impression as this. What a writer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and exciting 1 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the third book in the Sally Lockhart series and I am very much looking forward to reading the last. After reading the second with the rather emotional and powerful ending, I was anxious to see how Sally would get on in the next book, and what she could possibly have thrown at her now - and this one does not disappoint, the anticipation and excitement starts almost straight away and it is a hard book to put down. Written by a brilliant author I think this series of books provides a great deal of entertainment and escapism and I would thoroughly recommend

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and Informative 26 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback
The book has an air of menace that is quite frightening. It also informs the reader of the Jews plight during this period.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great series! 23 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Philip Pullman is an incredibly gifted author. This series is very different from his northern lights series but it's just as gripping. Sally is a fantastic and believable heroine..you won't want to put this book down!
