A thrilling and mysterious middle-grade adventure in a dark and dangerous Victorian world, perfect for fans of Emma Carroll, Robin Stevens, and Jenni Spangler.
When you´re dead, you´re dead. When you´re gone, you´re gone.
Unless, of course, you´re not.
And that´s where I come in.
The year is 1897, and Peggy Devona can speak with ghosts.
She hides her gift from those afraid of a girl with such powers, terrified of the secrets the dead could reveal through her. But when her best friend is accused of murdering her rich mistress, Peggy knows only she - a whisperling - can save her.
Peggy escapes to her uncle´s psychic emporium in the city, seeking out new ghosts to help her solve Sally´s case.
Yet time is running out, and each step towards uncovering the truth also brings Sally one step closer to the gallows. . .
