The Truth About Verity Sparks

By Susan Green

Verity Sparks is good at finding lost things, but will she be able to uncover the truth about her own past?

London. 1878. Verity Sparks has an extraordinary talent: she can find lost things just by thinking about them. When she joins a Confidential Inquiry Agency, she discovers there is a mystery lurking in her own past and that unknown forces are working against her. It soon becomes clear that Verity and her friends are in great danger. Who doesn’t want them to learn the truth about Verity Sparks?
