‘Beautifully written, unflinching and brimming with adventure’ – Jennifer Saint, author of Ariadne and Elektra

‘Immersive storytelling, a rollicking mystery and a take-no-prisoners heroine’ – Stylist

1896, Bannin Bay, Australia. When British pearl-boat captain Charles Brightwell goes missing out at sea, rumours of mutiny and murder swell within the bay’s dens and back alleys. Only his headstrong daughter, Eliza, refuses to believe her father is dead, and sets out on a dangerous journey to uncover the truth.

But in a town teeming with corruption, prejudice, and blackmail, Eliza soon learns that the answers she seeks might cost more than pearls. How much is she willing to sacrifice to find them?

‘Both a breathtaking adventure story and a moving testimony to the lengths we go to for the people we love, it swept me away from the first page’ – Emma Stonex, author of The Lamplighters
