Before they were mortal enemies, they were much more…
FACT: Someone has been murdered in London’s Regent’s Park. The police have no leads.

About the Author
Praise For Lock & Mori…
— Kirkus Reviews
“A unique spin on a familiar tale makes Lock & Mori wise, witty and engaging. Author Heather W. Petty is a force to be reckoned with.”
— Ellen Hopkins, author of CRANK, TRICKS, AND TRAFFICK
"Darkly atmospheric, and the stakes are high."
"Mori is a well-developed, multidimensional protagonist and a lively narrator. Lock is just as intriguing...The ending will leave readers wanting more from these two mystery mavens."
— School Library Journal
"[A] quick-moving mystery distinguished by clear writing, memorable imagery, and some keen insights into human fragility."
— Publishers Weekly
“True to canon, this sleuthing tale is rife with intrigues, puzzles, and vivid danger. Read at your own peril – nothing is more electrifying than the hunt for truth.”
— The Christian Science Monitor
"[T]een readers will enjoy the dialogue, the dark mystery, and of course, the romance."
— School Library Connection
