Waterstones Says

Natasha Pulley returns grateful readers to the singular universe of The Watchmaker of Filigree Street in this bewitching sequel set in a gloriously gothic Japan. Bizarre hauntings and electrical storms blight a Tokyo mired in mystery and mayhem, as The Lost Future of Pepperharrow dazzles and beguiles with fast-paced plotting and quirky characterisation.  

Step back into the enchanting world of The Watchmaker of Filigree StreetThis extraordinary sequel takes readers to Japan, where time, destiny and love collide to electrifying effect.

For Thaniel Steepleton, an unexpected posting to Tokyo can't come at a better moment. The London fog has made him ill and doctor's orders are to get out.

His brief is strange: the staff at the British Legation have been seeing ghosts, and his first task is to find out what's going on. But staying with his closest friend Keita Mori in Yokohama, Thaniel starts to experience ghostly happenings himself.

For reasons he won't say, Mori is frightened. Then he vanishes. Meanwhile, something strange is happening in a frozen labour camp in northern Japan. Takiko Pepperharrow, an old friend of Mori's, must investigate. As ghosts appear across Tokyo and the weather turns bizarrely electrical, Thaniel grows convinced that it all has something to do with Mori's disappearance - and that Mori might be in far more trouble than any of them first thought.

“I was completely spellbound by this book....”

It is very hard to write a neutral review of a book I loved so much. All I want to say is a string of superlatives: wonderful, brilliant, unputdownable.... I was completely spellbound by this book. Natasha Pulley... More

“Just Magic - My New Favourite Series!”

This sequel to The Watchmaker of Filigree Street is as charming, bizarre and funny as the first. We return to Pulley's alternative London in 1888, where Thaniel Steepleton is living with his adopted daughter Six... More
