A powerful, haunting debut that steps seamlessly from the horrors of people-trafficking to the magic of African folklore.

Sante was a baby when she was washed ashore in a sea-chest laden with treasure. It seems she is the sole survivor of the tragic sinking of a ship carrying migrants and refugees. Her people.

Fourteen years on she's a member of Mama Rose's unique and dazzling circus. But, from their watery grave, the unquiet dead are calling Sante to avenge them:

A bamboo flute. A golden bangle. A ripening mango which must not fall . . .
. . . are these the missing pieces of the jigsaw which will tell Sante's story?

'An ambitious, impressive and skilful blend of modernity, mystery and myth' SUNDAY TIMES.
