Overview

En cualquier momento, cuando todo está bien en tu vida, puedes caer al pozo...donde aguarda el tigre.

Londres, 1881. La valiente Sally vive dedicada a su hija, Harriet, en una bonita casa que comparte con sus amigos, Jim Taylor y Webster Garland, y su negocio nunca había ido tan bien. Sin embargo, alguien acecha sus casa, alguien sigue sus pasos, alguien está a punto de tirar de la cuerda que abrirá la trampilla bajo sus pies. Lo llaman el Tzaddik, y se enriquece a costa de la miseria ajena, que en la Europa de finales del siglo XIX, se traduce en migraciones, mano de obra barata y corrupción. Es tan poderoso y malvado que se ha convertido en leyenda, y su nombre provoca escalofríos, desde las heladas aldeas de la estepa rusa hasta las mismas barriadas de Londres.

Lassy Lockhart necesitará reunir toda su astucia y sangre fría para no desmoronarse ni perder el pulso, porque la vida de su hija corre serio peligro. Esta vez estará sola, pero contará con el consejo y el apoyo de Daniel Goldberg, su nuevo amigo, que comparte con ella el gusto por la aventura, la audacia y una inagotable sed de justicia.

*****

Sally, now 25, is comfortably settled with her child, Harriet, her work, and her London friends. But when a complete stranger claims to be both her husband and Harriet's father, Sally's whole world comes crashing down around her. With nowhere to turn, she escapes with Harriet into the slums of London's East End�and finds help in some unexpected quarters.

Editorial Reviews

Criticas
YA-This installment in the Sally Lockhart series features in-depth characterization, well-developed settings, and serious themes. Here several years have passed since the preceding book, Sally y la sombra del norte. Sally is now a young, single mother with a successful business. Near the end of the earlier book, her husband died just before the birth of their daughter, Harriet. Both of these characteristics mark her as a rarity in late Victorian London and even, arguably, as a "loose woman." As the tale begins she is attacked precisely at those vulnerable points when she learns she is being sued for the custody of her daughter by a man who claims to be her estranged husband. Sally has never met this man, but there is a record of the marriage at a London church where the man claims the wedding took place. From this moment forward, Sally is off-balance and on the run, pitifully served by her lawyer and, apparently, at the mercy of someone who has anticipated her every move and thought. Woven into this heart-wrenching narration is another story that centers on the immigration of Eastern European Jews to England and the hope that socialism offered to many downtrodden people at the time. It focuses on a remarkable polyglot socialist journalist who uses his literary skills to advance the cause of workers and to investigate a mysterious and powerful figure called the Tzaddik, who seems to be behind the misfortune. How Pullman draws this story and Sally's together, with links back to the first Sally Lockhart book (The Ruby in the Smoke, not yet available in Spanish), reveals his mastery and depth. Recommended for all bookstores and libraries serving junior high and older students as well asadults.
