Description

*A signed anniversary edition of the first award-winning mystery, with an exclusive, brand-new chapter!*

Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong have started their own detective agency at Deepdean School for Girls, but they're struggling to find any real mysteries to solve (Lavinia's missing tie doesn't count).

All that is about to change when Hazel discovers the Science Mistress lying dead in the Gym. And the mystery only deepens when the body disappears before the girls can alert anyone.

Can the detective duo not only solve the murder, but prove that there was a murder in the first place - before the police get there first?

The first thrilling story in the bestselling Murder Most Unladylike series.

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 are both award-winning and bestselling. She lives in Oxford.
