Zinnie and her sisters live by their wits in the murky tunnels beneath Edinburgh. They keep out of the way of the authorities and remain undetected.

As Zinnie becomes caught up in a world brimming with intrigue, can she help the budding detective find answers while also protecting the sisters she holds so dear?
