A stunning reissue of the critically acclaimed tale, the first in the Knight's Haddon series – available from May 2015.
Orphan Edie King is sent to Knight’s Haddon – a castle-like boarding school – to keep a watchful eye on Anastasia, the unhappy daughter of a Russian prince. Before long, Edie is caught up in a sinister mystery and a kidnap plot – which it’s up to her to stop.
Edie crouched on her bedroom windowsill, training her field glasses on the three boys by the stone pond. Their names were Lyle, Jason and Tom, and she hated them. They were like foxes, thin and cunning, with eyes that flashed through mops of filthy hair.
