The second thrilling mystery in the bestselling Murder Most Unladylike series!

'A delight . . . The Agatha Christie-style clues are unravelled with sustained tension and the whole thing is a hoot from start to finish' Daily Mail

'A feelgood blend of Malory Towers and Cluedo . . . Stevens has upped her game in this new volume' Telegraph


-----

Schoolgirl detectives Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are at Daisy's home, Fallingford, for the holidays.

Daisy's glamorous mother is throwing a tea party for Daisy's birthday, and the whole family is invited, from eccentric Aunt Saskia to dashing Uncle Felix.

But it soon becomes clear that this party isn't really about Daisy at all. Naturally, Daisy is furious.

Then one of their party falls seriously, mysteriously ill - and everything points to poison.


With wild storms preventing anyone from leaving, or the police from arriving, Fallingford suddenly feels like a very dangerous place to be.

Not a single person present is what they seem - and everyone has a secret or two.

And when someone very close to Daisy looks suspicious, the Detective Society must do everything they can to reveal the truth . . . no matter the consequences.

'The second book in Robin Stevens' fabulous Wells and Wong schoolgirl detective series - think St Trinians mixed with Miss Marple. These are thrilling books for tween detectives who adore solving dastardly murders, jolly hockey sticks and iced buns for tea' Guardian

These Agatha-Christie-indebted tales involve detective duo Daisy Wells and her sidekick Hazel Wong, wealthy schoolgirls from England and Hong Kong. In the first book, they investigated a murder at their boarding school. This time, Daisy's family's stately home - a hotbed of jealousy and greed - provides a rich cast of suspects when it's not just the cake candles that are snuffed out at a birthday tea party. Emotional conflict, logical deduction and the period setting make for an entertaining, nostalgic brainteaser -- Nicolette Jones * Sunday Times *
As irresistible and entertaining as the first. Just the thing to devour with a pot of tea and a plate of scones * Young Post *
