A great detective story set in the 1930's at Deepdean Boarding School for Girls. Think a cross between Secret Seven and Malory Towers.... all in all, it's smashing good fun!
Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are Third Formers. They set up a secret detective agency. For a while very little happens for them to investigate but their luck is about to change Hazel stumbles across the body of their Science Mistress, Miss Bell, in the school gymnasium. When the body quickly disappears, and the other teachers in the school continue as if nothing has happened, it is left to Daisy and Hazel to solve the crime.
Many teachers have motives, many of their alibis don't add up, so how can the girls narrow things down to find the murderer before he or she strikes again?
I loved this book, a good old fashioned mystery story. I loved the old fashioned language and Hazel and Daisy's characters. I look forward to reading the other books in the series. Give this a go if you like crime/mystery books!
There are four books in the series, with a fifth out in Ocotber 2016!!
**** The books have been optioned by an independent production company and may soon be made into a TV programme or film!!*****
