A mesmerising Gothic mystery from Costa Award-shortlisted author Nicholas Bowling.

To the horror of young gravedigger, Ned, bodysnatchers have been visiting his churchyard in the dead of night. Until now, he'd been daydreaming about another visitor - daughter of the manor, Obedience Wellrest. But sixteen-year-old Obedience has troubles of her own: her loving but overbearing father, and his wish to see her married to a rich man of science, Phineas Mordaunt. When Mordaunt starts to poke his nose into her family history - in particular, the ruinous research of late Uncle Herbert - Obedience enters into a dangerous game with Death, and Ned might be the only person who can save her ... A mesmerising tale of magic, death and science, wrapped up in a delicious Gothic mystery Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell meets Dangerous Remedy - for young adult readers From highly acclaimed Costa Award-shortlisted author, Nicholas Bowling
