On a dark and stormy night...

...along the Thames a 4-year-old girl is pulled out of the river. She appears to be dead… and then she isn’t. Who can she be? Does she belong to the poor battered man her brings her into the Swan Pub and then passes out? Is she the kidnapped daughter of the local gentry lost two years before? Or the grandchild of a nearby farmer through his ne’er-do-well son? A touch of gothic style, a dash of folklore, a fascinating mystery, and a cast of strange and wonderful characters will make this a popular pick.
