Barnaby Grimes is a tick-tock lad, running errands in his city, day and night, and "high-stacking" around the rooftops in search of new mysteries to solve. In this first adventure, Barnaby is attacked one night by an enormous dog. He kills it: but that's not the end of this particular Barnaby finds himself swept up in a world of crooked doctors, poor and ill-advised patients, strange tonics, and very expensive furs. Could there be more to the seemingly respectable Dr Cadwallader and the tonics he doles out to the poor? Is there a link between the tonic and the huge dogs, or possibly wolves, that are roaming the city at night? When Barnaby's old acquaintance Benjamin goes missing, Barnaby fears the worst for him, and decides to dig deeper. A fantastic romp through a Dickensian-style city, with a wonderful new hero in the guise of Barnaby. This new series from the best-selling dream team of Stewart and Riddell is a must for all fans of the Edge Chronicles, but also for fans of Horowitz and Shan, as they move into new territory and deliver a brilliantly exciting thriller-horror for boys.

Unglaublich spannend

Obwohl ich relativ schnell ahnte, worum es geht, blieb das Buch bis zum Ende spannend. Und es ist klasse gelesen. Durch die Art der Lesung ist man wirklich gefesselt. Atmosphäre und Stimmung sind fantastisch beschrieben und durch den Leser noch betonter.
