An underworld of toshers and guttersnipes lurk in the sewers and back alleys of King’s Haven. They fear the gaze of Mrs Hester who might steal their souls and commit them to the non-existence of the White Witches.
Larabelle Fox exists as a tosher, making a living through what she finds in the sewers and can sell onto Old Hans. She relies on her wits, her friendship with Jack Cotton and the kindness of his failing grandmother. However, life is changing in King’s Haven. There are rumours of the rise of the Evernight. Lara is aware of the lurking presence of Shadow Jack, a djin controlled by Mrs Hester who seeks her especially. What does he want of Lara? Could it be something to do with her hidden treasure that compels and warns her movements? Might this link her to an unknown or magical past?
