Cracksman s Bird

S. o it was that Ian and Dina entered into an uneasy truce and a conspiracy of silence. It did not need to be said that neither ofthem would ever speak of the events of that night again, and they did not.

When ten-year-old Dina and her best friend Kate are unexpectedly whisked from the relative safety of the orphan home to a factory indenture, Dina promises to protect her friend from their imperious matron and hostile co-workers. It is a promise that she cannot keep, and in a revenge-driven midnight siege, Kate is tragically killed. In despair, Dina escapes to the depraved streets of Victorian London's East End. Canny and resilient, she must learn quickly how to fend for herself, filching food and finding shelter where she can. Before long, her life takes another, more perilous turn when she is plucked from the streets by a volatile cracksman and his gang, to assist them in their high-end burglaries. She must use her every skill, and learn new ones, to survive Ian Brown's often violent keeping and the work she must do. All the while, she must also avoid capture by the man hired to return her to her indenture; someone known to Mr Brown through still darker circumstances, and someone who could prove as dangerous to her as her keeper.

Wild, fantastic, yet overwhelmingly logical, this yarn could come only from Chicago's own Sherlock Holmes and that favorite of American mystery fans, Harry Stephen Keeler. Here he gives us a brand-new webwork of mysteries -- a cracksman who uses not dynamite, but a violin; a second-hand safe with amazing secrets inside; a volcanic island in the Pacific; a fantastic kingdom in Europe; and a pair of lovers caught in the very center of this whirlwind of danger and detection. As usual, this breathless yarn is filled with facts and incidents undreamed of in the usual mystery story. Keeler fans will find it a special treat. "My guiltiest pleasure is Harry Stephen Keeler. He may been the greatest bad writer America has ever produced. Or perhaps the worst great writer. I do not know. There are few faults you can accuse him of that he is not guilty of. But I love him." -- Neil Gaiman
