On her twelfth birthday Brat’s father disappears. She waits, but he never comes back. When she goes looking she is laughed at, and her belongings stolen. Reduced to begging and determined to find out what has happened to him, she is helped by Gray and Baylock, whom she quickly discovers are outlaws. There is far more to either of them than a brush with the law, and Brat finds that nothing is simple, nowhere is safe, and being reunited with her family must wait, as more pressing tasks fall into her path.


A very informal launch reading at Eltham Centre Library, Archery Road, Eltham SE9 1HA on 7th June at 1.30 readings will be performed by Carrie Cohen, a long time Arachne collaborator.
