Publisher's Summary

London 1715. The air is black with soot. The murky alleyways crowded with people. In the shadow of St Paul's Cathedral, there are rumours of a gruesome murder. The victim had been "beskewered by an arrow right through his heart". Even in the city where crime is commonplace, this catches the attention of young Tom Marlow. Tom is fascinated, and when the mystery unexpectedly intrudes into his own life, he feels compelled to investigate.

simply awful

the plot (which you cant help but guess near the middle of the book) is childish and quite absurd to say the least. second half of the book is one big cringe.
