Publisher's Summary

An elderly lady loses her money on an investment; a conjuror is pursued by thugs; and a clairvoyant mentions the name of the richest man in Europe and his mysterious company. Seemingly unconnected events set Sally Lockhart on the trail of an evil far more awful than she could ever imagine. This thriller, by the author of The Ruby in the Smoke, evokes its 19th century setting and at the same time remains remarkably contemporary in the originality of its plot and larger-than-life characters. An unabridged reading of Philip Pullman's nerve-shattering thriller.

Brilliant series

Would you listen to The Shadow in the North again? Why?

Yes, I read the books as a teenager and returned to the audiobooks recently. The books are connected but work on their own too. Sally's character is brilliant, what a wonderful strong character she was to grow up with. I love Pullman's attention to detail, it keeps the stories rich time after time.

What about Anton Lesser’s performance did you like?

He is a very accomplished actor and performed with skill and subtlety.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I always do both when I listen to these.
