It is no ordinary doll, however. This one holds a secret that has the two most notorious gangs in London�s East End, the Rat Mob and the Nichols, at each other�s throats. When Dinah, the daughter of the leaders of the Rat Mob, is found murdered Tom resolves to find her killer. Helped by Ned and the self-appointed Bug Destroyer to Her Majesty, the redoubtable Mr Chuckwick, Tom pursues the trail.
