THE TIGER IN THE WELL
TITLE: THE TIGER IN THE WELL
AUTHOR: PHILLIP PULLMAN
Details: no. 3 Sally Lockhart Mystery/YF
Sally appears to have her life in order. Her business is a success, her daughter is healthy and although she still misses Frederick, her daughter's father, she is mostly content.
Then disaster strikes in the form of a man she has never heard of filing to divorce her and gain custody of her daughter.
Although Sally knows she has never been married, a marriage and birth certificate seem to prove differently.
Threatened with losing everything, Sally has the biggest fight of her life on her hands.
Once again Pullman delivers a thrilling and intriguing story and look at Victorian London and the political situation at the time.
I skimmed my way through this book though, because I knew who was behind the plot against Sally and why from very early on.
But, I'm liking this series enough to go straight on to the forth and final instalment.
