The Thief Lord

(2000)
A novel by

 
Winter has come early to Venice.

Two orphaned children are on the run, hiding among the crumbling canals and misty alleyways of the city. Befriended by a gang of street children and their mysterious leader, the Thief Lord, they shelter in an old, disused cinema.

On their trail is a bungling detective, obsessed with disguises and the health of his pet tortoises. But a greater threat to the boys' new-found freedom is something from a forgotten past-a beautiful magical treasure with the power to spin time itself.

Wonderful. An exciting and richly atmospheric thriller told in the best storytelling tradition by a bestselling international children's author.

"My enjoyment of Thief Lord grew and grew as I read it... and I loved the offbeat ending." - Diana Wynne Jones
