Description
An only child, Abigail has been raised amid the books and instruments of her father's grim profession, and he in turn indulges her curious and critical mind. Now she must push against the restrictions society places on a girl her age to pursue an increasingly dangerous investigation. Abigail's searches begin to uncover the well-guarded secrets of two factions--the Christian Brethren and a burgeoning rationalist community--drawing the attention of a sinister figure who emerges in fleeting glimpses and second-hand reports: the man with the lazy eye Determined, resourceful, and intuitive, Abigail Lawless emerges as a young lady sleuth operating at the dawn of forensic science.
