We follow the main characters, Daisy Wells and Hazel Wongas as they set up their very own secret detective agency at Deepdean School for Girls. The most exciting case to date has been the case of Lavinia’s missing tie, which was not that exciting at all.

Hazel discovers the Science Mistress, Miss Bell, lying dead in the gym. She assumes it’s an accident but when she returns with Daisy the body has vanished.

To solve this case means they have to actually prove a murder took place.

The book explores their hunt for the killer. Full of intrigue and mystery, they need to move fast.

Will they solve the case?

The author, Robin Stevens was born in California and grew up in Oxford, England, across the road from the house where Alice in Wonderland lived. Robin is now a full-time author who lives in England with her family.

I thought this book was charming and thrilling and sure to delight young readers. The characters are likeable and the story moves along at a fast pace. A great read for any budding detective!
