Description 1 online resource (95 minutes)
Summary She can run a business, ride like a Cossack and shoot straight with a pistol. Sally Lockhart is the bold, fresh heroine of this thrilling and terrifying tale from Philip Pullman, award-winning writer of the acclaimed His Dark Materials trilogy, also adapted for the big screen. Sally, recently orphaned, is alone and being hunted by an assassin. With her new friends - young photographer Frederick and quick-witted street child Jim - she must discover her father's killer. Facing them is an unseen, murderous opponent and at the heart of it all, the deadly, blood-drenched secret of the ruby in the smoke. Sally Lockhart has struck a man dead with just three words, sent to her in a message from her father just before he drowned in the South China Seas. But unfortunately, Sally has no idea what the words The Seven Blessings mean. Before long, she is drawn into a mystery filled with opium, secrets from her own past and, at the heart of it all, the Ruby of Agrapur
