Her real name is Eva Strange, although most people know her by her obligatory city registration number: 0004511477. 'Sevens' to her friends. Of which she has very few. With her trademark fedora, her shaded welder's eyeglasses, and her stoic loneliness, Eva is a distant cousin of Phillip Marlow and Sam Spade. She is also a special detective for a newly formed adjunct to the police force - the White Patrol - a secret intelligence unit charged with ferreting out black sorcery in a future world rotten with magic. And like Spade and Marlow before her, Eva is about to unlock a horrifying conspiracy - this one threatening the very fabric of space and time. With echoes of Lovecraft, fantasy pulps, and neo-futuristic noir, The Miniaturist unfolds in feverish, dreamy bullet-time, an acid trip for lovers of all things dark and fantastic.
