Magical and gory historical fantasy set amid the darkness of Tudor London. The heroine? Her job is to catch chopped-off heads. No wonder she wants to run away… Moss hates her life. And we don’t blame her. As the daughter of the executioner in the Tower of London, it’s her job to catch dead heads in her basket as they roll away. She dreams of escape, but she and her father are prisoners; condemned to die in the tower like the executed. Just much more slowly. Then Moss discovers a hidden tunnel that leads her to freedom, and to a great journey along the mighty River Thames. Could the truth about her past lie deep in its murky depths? Riveting stuff: gothic, horrifying yet laced with fairytale beauty.
