Jolly Foul Play


Hazel Wong and Daisy Wells have returned to Deepdean, following their adventures aboard the Orient Express. For Hazel, there is relief in the certainty of the school’s traditions. However, there are new, unlikely strains and tensions, caused through the despicable reign of new Head Girl, Elizabeth Hurst, and her Gang of Five prefects. When Elizabeth dies unexpectedly at the school’s Bonfire Night, Wells & Wong are quick to activate their Detective Society, for they, alone, are aware the death is not accidental, but a murder.

Developing differences between Daisy and Hazel, the extension of the Detective Society, Hazel’s correspondence with Alexander, and scandalous notes found indiscriminately about Deepdean’s premises, all add to the anxiety, interest and pace. Robin Stevens has maintained her instincts, her characterisations, and careful plotting in this fourth ‘Murder Most Unladylike‘ title, to create a truly ‘Jolly Foul Play.’
