Abstract:

Billy Shaw lives in Potter's Pleasure Palace, the best entertainment venue in Yorkshire, complete with dancing and swingboats and picnickers and a roller-skating rink. Jasper Harper lives in the big house above the valley with his eccentric mother Edie and Uncle Charles, brother and sister authors who have come from London to write in the seclusion of the moors. When it is arranged for Billy to become Jasper's companion, he arrives to find a wild, peculiar boy in a curiously haphazard household where the air is thick with secrets. Later, when Charles and Edie are found dead, it's ruled a double suicide. But fictions have become tangled up in facts, and it's left to Anna Sallis, almost a century later, to unravel the knots and piece together the truth.
