Publisher's Summary

Sally 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, with a gun if necessary, for the freedom of her family.

The third instalment of the quartet. Sally is a surprising and modern heroine, and her fight against unknown and relentless evil in Victorian London makes an exhilarating and unforgettable novel.

An unabridged reading of Philip Pullman's nerve-shattering thriller.

    "Thrills and suspense, Victorian style."

    Sally Lockhart is no ordinary Victorian heroine and Philip Pullman's series of four books will keep you enthralled as you follow her adventures in Victorian London and beyond. This is the third book in the series but I strongly recommend that you read the books in order (Ruby in the Smoke, Shadow in the North, Tiger in the Well and the Tin Princess) to keep the characters and plot developments in order. Each book moves at a cracking pace with the action hurrying you along yet never losing the chance to paint a convincing picture of Victorian life and the restrictions on women. Highly recommended.

    "Darker than the previous books"

    The story was still gripping though this one had darker undertones. The author also used the opportunity to explore social and political issues of the day. Well narrated. Overall, this was a good listen though some bits were slow and I missed the lighthearted interludes in the previous books.

    "Exceptional Writing, exceptional narration"

    I've never read a Philip Pullman book that I haven't loved and this is one of the best. Anton Lesser's narration only enhances the story. He has perfect pace and diction and he is very good at creating different voices for each character and keeping true to everyone's accent.

    "Disappointing"
    What would have made The Tiger in the Well better?

    Lesser's performance was good, but the book itself compared to first two in the series is just plain boring. I regret buying it and would not recommend to anyone. Enjoy Sally's previous adventures and leave it at Shadow in the North.

    "Brilliant, Sally Lockhart sensation"

    I really got caught up in this story, and almost missed picking up my kids from school to hear the end!
    If you've not read any of the series, give your ears a treat and listen to them.

    I just hope they turn book four, The Tin Princess into an audio book soon too

    "Easy listen,gripping, Historical drama"

    Great book. Gripping story and good narration.
    I want stew what to expect from this book whose description sounded very different to other Pullman novels. But I needn't have worried it was as good as others I have read by this author and immediately engaging vein fascinating characters and story line right from the start

    "An enjoyable read"

    I have read many books by the Author and never been disappointed. A great heroine character put under duress by a set of circumstances that bring out the best of British stiff upper lip, the mysterious socialist and the monstrous evil bad man, a great romp from beginning to end.
    The narrator is very good, well paced and a good range of characterisation.

    Anton Lesser brings books to life and Pullman offers insights into Victorian England that are full of intrigue and surprise. I've loved these books, wish there were more. Fantastic!
