A Laura Marlin Mystery

Publisher: Orion Children's Books

When mysterious uncle Calvin rescues Laura Marlin from her gloomy life in an orphanage, she can't believe her luck! Sipping hot chocolates by the sea with gulls wheeling through the air, Laura feels enchanted by her new life in Cornwall.

But she soon realises that her Cornish paradise is full of mysteries. Laura's cunning sense of observation and her love of amateur investigation soon set her on a mission to discover the truth.

Adventures are in store for our intrepid young heroine, when she uncovers the secret world of shady uncle Calvin and why she is forbidden to go to Dead Man's Cove.

With stunning depictions of the craggy Cornish coastline and a completely compelling plot this is the perfect book to curl up with this winter.
