The Shadow in the North


Product Description
Product Details


Gr 7 Up-Talented, versatile British actor Anton Lesser reads Philip Pullman's novel (Knopf, 1988), the second in the Sally Lockheart mystery trilogy. She is a financial consultant in Victorian England, an unusual position for a woman at that time. Investigating the loss of a client's savings leads Sally and her friends to attempt to stop what could have been one of the first weapons of mass destruction. In this installment, both Sally's pet and beau are killed. The themes covered in this volume require a more mature listener than the previous book. Anton Lesser ably narrates the novel, changing speed, tone, and pitch frequently. His accents vary to depict diverse locations in Britain and the different educational levels of the characters. Lesser's British pronunciation can be understood easily in context. An excellent presentation.-Claudia Moore, W.T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Termed by PW a ``brilliant bauble,'' this sequel to The Ruby and the Smoke finds Sally Lockhart, six years later, embroiled in high-level government chicanery; the mystery's tangled threads are ``quite elegantly tied up.'' Ages 12-up. (Oct.)
