Publisher's Summary

Sally is 25, and somebody wants to destroy her. She receives divorce papers from a man she has never met, let alone married - yet this trap is so well laid that she is powerless to prove otherwise.

When custody of her precious daughter is awarded to this evil stranger, it is the beginning of a terrifying struggle in which Sally will have to fight, with a gun if necessary, for the freedom of her family.

The third instalment of the quartet. Sally is a surprising and modern heroine, and her fight against unknown and relentless evil in Victorian London makes an exhilarating and unforgettable novel.

An unabridged reading of Philip Pullman's nerve-shattering thriller.

Wonderful book, great narrator

Philip Pullman writes beautifully! A well researched period mystery, full of suspense and drama. Anton Lesser narrates magnificently.

Thrills and suspense, Victorian style.

Sally Lockhart is no ordinary Victorian heroine and Philip Pullman's series of four books will keep you enthralled as you follow her adventures in Victorian London and beyond. This is the third book in the series but I strongly recommend that you read the books in order (Ruby in the Smoke, Shadow in the North, Tiger in the Well and the Tin Princess) to keep the characters and plot developments in order. Each book moves at a cracking pace with the action hurrying you along yet never losing the chance to paint a convincing picture of Victorian life and the restrictions on women. Highly recommended.

Outstanding narration

Anton Lesser brings this book to life. I'll be looking out for more with him. Pullman's writing wonderful as always, lots of twists and turns.

Disappointing

What would have made The Tiger in the Well better?

Lesser's performance was good, but the book itself compared to first two in the series is just plain boring. I regret buying it and would not recommend to anyone. Enjoy Sally's previous adventures and leave it at Shadow in the North.

Darker than the previous books

The story was still gripping though this one had darker undertones. The author also used the opportunity to explore social and political issues of the day. Well narrated. Overall, this was a good listen though some bits were slow and I missed the lighthearted interludes in the previous books.

Outstanding narrator

Anton Lesser's skill in narrating this third book in the Sally Lockhart series are as phenomenal as in the first two and I am only sorry to reach the end.

Brilliant, Sally Lockhart sensation

I really got caught up in this story, and almost missed picking up my kids from school to hear the end!
If you've not read any of the series, give your ears a treat and listen to them.

I just hope they turn book four, The Tin Princess into an audio book soon too

Easy listen,gripping, Historical drama

Great book. Gripping story and good narration.
I want stew what to expect from this book whose description sounded very different to other Pullman novels. But I needn't have worried it was as good as others I have read by this author and immediately engaging vein fascinating characters and story line right from the start

An enjoyable read

I have read many books by the Author and never been disappointed. A great heroine character put under duress by a set of circumstances that bring out the best of British stiff upper lip, the mysterious socialist and the monstrous evil bad man, a great romp from beginning to end.
The narrator is very good, well paced and a good range of characterisation.
