What starts as an ordinary picket-pocketing incident in Victorian London unites three teens against a madman. Eddie is the pickpocket; George is an assistant at the British Museum; Elizabeth has a nose for trouble--and all of them are being hunted by Augustus Lorimore. Lorimore is a sinister factory owner, a villain bent on reanimating the dead, both humans and dinosaurs--and one of each is already terrorizing the streets of London. It's up to Eddie, George, and Elizabeth to stop Lorimore's monsters . . . or die trying.
Three teens and a curator of unclassified artifacts at the British Museum match wits with a madman determined to use unorthodox methods to reanimate the dead, both humans and dinosaurs.
Annotation:
A mysterious scrap of paper, thieves, frightening creatures, and more await the reader of this satisfyingly fast-paced, gripping young adult mystery. George Archer, Eddie Hopkins, and Elizabeth Oldfield, three teenagers from wildly different places--a museum, the streets, and society--find themselves thrown together as they delve into a mystery so complex, and so terrifying, that with each move, their lives are more in danger than ever. Set in the 19th-century, this page-turner features not only a crazed man, but things better left in their graves.
