In the vein of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere and Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy comes a fantastic literary adventure about a red-headed eight-year-old named Audrey Green, whose wild ride across-and beneath-England heralds a remarkable literary debut. The year is 1957, and Audrey's father, a mild-mannered auditor, has found a series of mysterious patterns: in a ledger he's investigating, in the notes of a well-known sentimental tune, and in the names of Nobel researcher and a half-mad bookkeeper-a pattern that opens a door through which his youngest daughter vanishes. Like four other English children whose disappearance inside a wardrobe marked the beginning of an extraordinary journey, the travels of Audrey Green explore a dark, gorgeously imagined and deeply compelling world. Through mysterious underground subway tunnels that link people instead of places, sleepy seaside resorts, mysterious crime scenes and plague-ridden ships, it becomes clear that the only thing more astonishing than the search for Audrey Green is the truth about where she's gone. Sophisticated, original and masterfully plotted, Darren Callahan's AUDREY GREEN CHRONICLES will captivate readers of Michel Faber, Audrey Niffenegger, and JK Rowling.
