The Matrix meets Oliver Twist! WARP: The Hangman's Revolution is the second book in a major new series by Eoin Colfer, the bestselling author of Artemis Fowl.

F.B.I. Agent Chevie Savano is trapped in a nightmare. Unless she can return to 19th-century London and change the course of history, millions will die.
