asked Tom impatiently a few days later, breaking the ticking silence in Dr. Harker’s study. The doctor sat back in his chair and put the tips of his fingers together, tapping them gently one against. Well, Tom, he said, first of all we have to look at the facts at our disposal. but we don’t have any facts, said Tom, looking puzzled. On the contrary, we have lots of facts. We simply do not know, for the moment, what they mean. Tom looked even more puzzled. Come, come, Tom. What do we know? Tom furrowed his brow and shrugged his shoulders

Chris Priestley is a writer and political cartoonist. DEATH AND THE ARROW is a short book (161 pages) that I was able to read in a little over two hours. The story is a mystery & action tale that includes snippets of historical details. Even though I didn't get much out of the story, I can see why it would appeal to young boy readers: arrows falling from the sky, the death of the main character's best friend, tales about Indians, etc.
My Book Death and the arrow is about a mysterious death in London England. Chris Priestly has crafted a wonderful tale that is a rousing blend of Robert Louis Stevenson adventure and Sherlock Holmes detective story. All of these deaths occur with a arrow, and a little card is left behind with a skeleton and a arrow on it. When I started this book I could not put it down. It makes you want to keep reading to find out who is behind the mysterious murders.

Priestly pours generous measures of Dickens and Doyle (Sir Arthur Conan, that is) into this melodramatic murder mystery, set amid the vividly rendered stews of 18th-century London. A shadowy killer stalks the city's rooftops, each of his arrow-shot victims found with an ominous calling card. Despite the Noble Savage bit, and the fact that Tom's role in the tale is largely a passive one as his associates do most of the fighting and deduction, fans of Pullman's Victorian tales may enjoy the similar level of violence and almost tangibly miasmic setting.
