complete works of Charles Dickens, the good citizens of
Dingley Dell built an idyllic society based on a Victorian
past. Beyond the Dell is the Outland, and beyond that,
no one knows. Most residents live peacefully in their
splendid isolation, content with being orphans in a
forgotten world. For some, however, the Dell is too
small and their curiosity about the Outland is too great.
Those who leave are never heard from again.
Until, that is, eleven-year-old troublemaker Newman
Trimmers escapes from the valley to unmask the
world beyond, setting off a series of events that may
doom or save the entire Dinglian population. With
unmatched literary wit and imaginative storytelling,
Mark Dunn delivers the first contemporary Dickensian
thriller and one of the most innovative books in years.
