Waterstones Says

With more than a nod to Agatha Christie’s Death on the Nile, the final chapter in the Murder Most Unladylike series finds Wells and Wong cruising down the iconic river in the company of a mysterious society.

The ninth and final novel in the number-one bestselling, award-winning Murder Most Unladylike series.

Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are in Egypt, taking a cruise along the Nile. They are hoping to see some ancient temples and a mummy or two; what they get, instead, is murder.

Also travelling on the SS Hatshepsut is a mysterious society called the Breath of Life: a group of genteel English ladies and gentlemen, who believe themselves to be reincarnations of the ancient pharaohs. Three days into the cruise their leader is found dead in her cabin, stabbed during the night.

It soon becomes clear to Daisy and Hazel that the victim's timid daughter is being framed - and they begin to investigate their most difficult case yet.

But there is danger all around, and only one of the Detective Society will make it home alive...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Few series can maintain the thrills and pace over nine books, but Stevens has done so with aplomb . . . Fiendishly clever plotting, a gorgeous Egyptian backdrop, a startling denouement and romance for both our heroines. A triumphant finale for a much-loved series.' - The Bookseller

“As funny, warm and clever as you'd expect - a triumph of a finale!”

I haven’t read any Agatha Christie, but I know Robin is a big fan and that this is at least in part something of a tribute to Christie’s Death on the Nile, so I suspect for those who have read that there’ll be plenty... More

“Great conclusion!”

Murder Most Unladylike has been an amazing and enjoyable middle grade mystery series, and I'm sad to see it come to an end. Fortunately, Death Sets Sail does justice to the series and ends it with a complicated... More
