Peder And The Skincatcher

Peder lives at Castle Krumsky, now the Academy for Gifted Children, that not only trains children in the arts of the circus, but also acts as HQ for Cirtex – troupes of Circus Detectives who roam the Empire far and wide, entertaining folk and solving crimes at the same time, particularly against their biggest enemy, a man known only as The Skincatcher. When the castle is blown up, it falls to Peder and his friends to lead away the survivors, and try to solve the mystery of what has happened. They travel to Querkelberg, Peder’s home, and soon discover that the successive deaths of both of Peder’s parents are connected to the castle, and to The Skincatcher himself, who is now hell-bent on capturing Peder and uncovering the secret his parents hid from him years before.
