When 13-year-old Lily's inventor father vanishes on a routine Zeppelin flight, Lily's determined to find out the truth behind his disappearance. But she's not the only one searching for her father; there are silver-eyed men in the shadows who will stop at nothing to find him.
With Robert, the local clockmaker's son, Lily travels to London, where they soon discover that she holds the key to the mystery...a mystery closer to Lily's heart than she could have ever imagined.

Fascinating, original, exciting
The adventure on the clock at Big Ben
She brings alive all the emotions that the characters experience especially Lily's bravery, fear and the tension in the build up to the adventure.
It made me want to live in that world. I want a Malkin and a Mrs Rust.
I found the narration really easy to listen to, gentle and non invasive and it lets the story unfold to its thrilling climax.
I recommend this book to everyone, adults and children alike. It is engaging for all.
I found the voice of the narration a joy. Really took me on the journey of the story of the characters and in fact I have found more narrated by her to listen to. I hope the author writes more of these books.
Couldn't finish listening to this because of the one note narration where every line was read in the same sad, sad voice. The narrator didn't seem to be capable of any other emotion and also had a habit of stressing the wrong words in sentences. It was so off-putting I had to instead buy this in kindle format. There are plenty of amazing actors out there. Audible really needs to do better than this.
