Publisher: Corgi Children's

There's been a rather shocking murder at Deepdean School for Girls - but luckily, young detectives Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are on the case!

When Hazel discovers Science Mistress Miss Bell lying dead in the Gym, she thinks it must have been a terrible accident - but when she and Daisy return a few moments later, the body has completely disappeared. The girls realise a murder must have taken place, and soon discover that there's more than one person at Deepdean with a motive. Determined to get to the bottom of the crime, Hazel and Daisy put their detective skills to the test - but can they uncover the truth before the killer strikes again?

Agatha Christie meets Malory Towers in this 1930s-set mystery, which will delight fans of boarding school stories. Debut author Robin Stevens deftly blends plenty of old-fashioned 'jolly hockey sticks' spirit with a contemporary sensibility that will ensure this lively romp has plenty of appeal for young readers today. Neatly plotted with plenty of surprises and an especially endearing narrator in Hazel, this is a gloriously fun first outing for schoolgirl detective duo Wells and Wong.
