       Additional Information  
      The first of three terrifying prequels to the Deptford Mice Trilogy reveals a shocking truth: How did Jupiter, the Lord of the sewer rats, come to be the sower of such evil? It is the winter of 1664 and young Will Godwin, an alchemist's assistant, chances upon a mother cat and her three newborn kittens in a London churchyard. Taking pity on the freezing family, Will carries them back to his master's apothecary shop. And there, among the bubbling bottles and foul-smelling jars in Dr. Spittle's laboratory, unfolds an extraordinary tale of sorcery, villainy, and murder full of all of the intricate twists and turns that Robin Jarvis's many fans have come to expect.
