Murder Most Unladylike

£6.99

More children recommended ‘Murder Most Unladylike‘ to me when I was teaching than any other book. Now, I know why. Hazel Wong, secretary to the Wells & Wong Detective Society, narrates this first case, which becomes so much more than either she, or society President, Daisy Wells, could ever  believe. When Hazel discovers Miss Bell’s body below the gym balcony, just before dinner, a whole can of worms is opened, especially when the body has vanished when she returns with reinforcement….

Robin Stevens is pitch perfect. We can hear the 1930’s clipped diction, realise the anxious isolation and desperate need to belong, the aching attention seeking within the Deepdean boarding school setting. Bookwagon has a gem (a gold drop earring?) on its hands!
