ABOUT THE BOOK:
Catherine Sorgeiul lives with her Uncle in a rambling house in London's East End.
She has few companions and little to occupy the days beyond her own colourful imagination.

And lurking behind the lies Catherine has been told are secrets more deadly and devastating than anything her imagination can conjure ...
