THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER
‘This is that rare thing – a series that gets better with each book’ Telegraph
It’s Agatha Christie meets Malory Towers – and every bit as great as that sounds. Picnics, hi-jinks and jolly evil crimes. At Deepdean School for Girls, the game is afoot. (As the great Sherlock Holmes might say.) Hazel Wong and Daisy Wells have started a detective agency, and they’re waaaay busy. Yup: their cosy little world is a veritable hotbed of iniquity and crime. The cases keep coming in: dead teachers, poisoned party guests and the strange case of Lavinia’s missing tie. (Though they’re not sure if that counts.) Can the girls stay bezzies and stay sane with so much evil about?
The eighth brilliant mystery from the bestselling and award-winning Murder Most Unladylike series.
Daisy and Hazel are finally back at Deepdean, and the school is preparing for a most exciting event: the fiftieth Anniversary.
Plans for a weekend of celebrations are in full swing. But all is not well, for in the detectives’ long absence, Deepdean has changed. Daisy has lost her crown to a fascinating new girl – and many of the Detective Society’s old allies are now their sworn enemies.
Then the girls witness a shocking incident in the woods close by – a crime that they’re sure is linked to the Anniversary. As parents descend upon Deepdean, decades-old grudges, rivalries and secrets begin to surface, and soon Deepdean’s future is at stake.
Can the girls solve the case – and save their home?
