A fabulously imaginative historical fantasy. "Publishers Weekly," starred review of "The Inquisitor's Apprentice"

At the turn of the twentieth century, New York's Bowery District becomes the scene of a terrible murder when the Klezmer King gets fried to a crisp by his Electric Tuxedo on stage TheInquisitor's apprentice, thirteen-year-oldSacha Kessler, tries to help find the killer, but the closer he gets to solving the crime, the more it sounds as if the creature that haunted him in his first adventure is back. Worse still, his own Jewish family is in danger. Sacha has avoided learning magic until now, but as his world falls apart around him, he changes his mind.

Praise For…

"Rich language, colorful syntax, vivid description and a brilliant cast of characters beckon readers right into both the adventure and the heartfelt emotional landscape. Exciting, action-packed and absolutely marvelous."
Kirkus, starred review

"What captivates is the world that Moriarty has created, one where magic is woven into the very fabric. . . A touch of Chabon, a hiss of steampunk, and a blast of originality."
Booklist, starred review
