From the Publisher
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.
Thrown together through weird circumstances, three teens must band together to fend off the madman Augustus Lorimore who is aggressively hunting them down in order to ensure a clear path for his plans to set loose reanimated dead humans and dinosaurs on the streets of London. Reprint.
