The London Eye Mystery

(4 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Penguin

Ted likes the weather, he also likes statistics and routine but his life is thrown into disarray when his Aunt Gloria and cousin Salim arrive, like a hurricane, to stay in London en-route to a new life in New York.

Ted and his older sister Kat arrange to take Salim on the London Eye but although they watch him go up in a pod, he never comes down again. Salim is missing. Ted's analytical mind becomes an asset as he and Kat piece together the information surrounding their cousin's disappearance and begin to unravel the mystery.

Ted is an endearing character and the focus of the story is on the solving of a mystery rather than his Asperger's syndrome. This is a beautifully written and engaging book.
