The Clockwork Sparrow meets Downton Abbey.
Born into the aristocracy, Rose Raventhorpe is expected to be prim and proper at all times, something she finds impossible. She loves nothing more than wandering around Yorke with her beloved butler Argyle, listening to the stories he tells about the city.
So when Argyle is murdered – the third butler to be stabbed in a week – Rose feels compelled to find out what really happen. Rose quickly discovers a whole world beyond her own, where trust is rare and suspicions are rife, a world filled with grave-robbers, magicians and the city’s ancient feline guardians. Can she bring the murderers of her faithful butler to justice? And can she ever learn to cut the perfect cucumber sandwich…with a sword?
