Alice Éclair Spy Extraordinaire


Alice Éclair has been tasked with her first spying mission, despite her youth. It means her working aboard the Sapphire Express as a pastry chef, where only perfection is accepted. What’s more, she’s tasked with discovering who amongst the passengers is a spy, and then recovering the papers they’re evidently taking to Marseilles. It’s a tall task, but Alice has been well trained. What’s more, somebody has been sending her clues and puzzles and preparing her with missions about Paris; Alice is ready.

However as Alice delves deeper it’s obvious that there are secrets and lies amongst a number of passengers. It takes all of her deduction and clear thinking to maintain her role aboard, while investigating without being rumbled. Thereafter, when she does make her breakthrough it is nothing as she expected…. In fact it leads to a shocking discovery.
