Description

Join Daisy and Hazel on their fourth murder mystery!

'Ripping good fun' The Times

'Thrilling' Guardian

-----

As they return to Deepdean for a new school term, Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are faced with some big changes.

For one, there's a new Head Girl, Elizabeth Hurst, and a team of Prefects- and these bullying Big Girls are certainly not good eggs.

Then, after the fireworks display on Bonfire Night, Elizabeth is found - murdered.

Many girls at Deepdean had reason to hate Elizabeth, but who might have committed such foul play?

Could the murder be linked to the secrets and scandals, scribbled on scraps of paper, that are suddenly appearing around the school?

And with their own friendship falling to pieces, how will Daisy and Hazel solve this mystery?

Review quote

Jolly gripping stuff * The Times * Another cracking mystery * Sunday Express * It's Agatha Christie for nine-year-olds with psychological insight from our Chinese heroine. Golly! * Spectator * Enough twists and turns to satisfy young readers . . . An exciting story * Sun * In her Murder Most Unladylike series, Robin Stevens has cleverly created a crossbreed of the detective and boarding school genres. The closeted, parent-free environment of Deepdean School for Girls provides a fertile breeding ground for intrigue and speculation. In this fourth title, the head girl Elizabeth - a tyrant in a gym slip - is murdered on Bonfire Night * Telegraph *

About Robin Stevens

Robin was born in California and grew up in an Oxford college, across the road from the house where Alice in Wonderland lived. She has been making up stories all her life.

When she was twelve, her father handed her a copy of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and she realised that she wanted to be either Hercule Poirot or Agatha Christie when she grew up.

She spent her teenage years at Cheltenham Ladies' College, reading a lot of murder mysteries and hoping that she'd get the chance to do some detecting herself (she didn't). She went to university, where she studied crime fiction, and then she worked at a children's publisher.

Robin is now a full-time author, and her books, The Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries and The Guggenheim Mystery, are both award-winning and bestselling. She lives in Oxford.
