Tracking the murderer of her fiancee through 19th century London's darkest warrens, Jacky Snapp has disguised herself as a boy--but the disguise fails when, trying to save a girl from the ghost of her jealous husband, Jacky finds that she has made herself visible to the ghosts that cluster around the Thames--
--And one of them is the ghost of her fiancee, who was poisoned and physically transformed by his murderer but unwittingly shot dead by Jacky herself.

Jacky and the girl she rescued, united in the need to banish their pursuing ghosts, learn that their only hope is to flee upriver to the barge known as Nobody's Home--where the exorcist whose name is Nobody charges an intolerable price.

There are so many ways this A sad prequel to the Anibis gates this didn't tie up any loose strings it just caused more questions. This book could have gone, from the ghost hunters, beggers guilds

I was confused when i bought this book, thinking it was a sequel to The Anubis Gates. In fact, it is a short story with one of the characters from that book and doesn't really have anything to do with the classic novel. I paid a lot for this short story, but will not review it based on my ignorance. Good story.
