Sally Lockhart no se parece en nada a las dems jovencitas de diecisis aos de la Inglaterra victoriana. No ha sido educada en arte, historia o buenas maneras, pero conoce a la perfeccin las tcticas militares, cabalga como un cosaco y dispara con una pistola con ms puntera que muchos soldados. Cuando descubre que su padre ha muerto en circunstancias sospechosas en el mar del sur de China, se lanza a una peligrosa aventura que la llevar a poner en peligro su propia vida. Una aventura en el oscuro mundo de los traficantes de opio, una trama llena de accin en cuyo corazn se encuentra una temible maldicin y una frase capaz de matar a un hombre: ""las Siete Bendiciones""... / Have you ever heard the phrase The Seven Blessings?' That question causes a man to die of shock, and propels Sally Lockhart into a desperate adventure that will expose the deepest secrets of the corrupt and murderous opium trade. Sally is sixteen when the story begins, orphaned and alone. She's had an unconventional education: her knowledge of English Literature, French, History, Art and Music is non-existent, but she has a thorough grounding in military tactics, can run a business, ride like a Cossack and shoot straight with a pistol.
