Everyone has a facade. Everyone has a secret ...An unputdownable and haunting mystery from award-winning author Jamila Gavin. From the dark of the Bulgarian underworld to the grandeur of central London, what you don't know can't harm you. Or so Nettie believes. Nettie lives a privileged life in a mansion and she is adored by her parents. But her world shatters when her beloved tutor, Miss Kovachev, mysteriously disappears from the Round Tower. Does the ghost in the shadows of Nettie's house have something to do with it? Will spooky Great-Aunt Laetitia help her piece together the fragments? And why won't her parents tell her anything? Jamila Gavin is perhaps best known for her Wheel of Surya trilogy and Coram Boy, which have won her numerous awards and nominations. The Robber Baron's Daughter is a carefully woven tale of a privileged girl who becomes embroiled in trafficking, and Jamila Gavin once again proves that she is one of the finest writers for children putting pen to paper today. Praise for Coram Boy: 'A rich and almost gothic drama' Philip Pullman, Guardian 'The different strands of the novel ...come together in a thrillingly satisfying conclusion' Sunday Telegraph 'Perhaps the richest, most beautifully-wrought historical novel written for a generation' Herald
