Violet lives in a flat with a large communal garden. She plays amongst the midders (aged between 7- 11) and visits Dee Dee Derota, former Hollywood actress. When new neighbours arrive, Violet and her best friend Rose, invite Isabella, the daughter of the family to join their play. However, she and her parents appear standoffish and untrustworthy.

When Dee Dee’s precious jewel, the Pearl of the Orient goes missing, Violet is keen to sniff out the culprit. With hapless P.C. Green on the case and protocol to follow, Violet is thwarted at every turn. Will her climbing skills and careful mapping help her in ‘Violet and the Pearl of the Orient‘?

What a fulfilling mystery series opener this proves to be! Bookwagon looks forward to introducing more titles in the collection to its readers.

    I liked this book because it was a mystery and Violet was very good at spying. I hope to read more Violet mysteries as they are fun. Thanks Bookwagon for introducing me to Harriet Whitehorn
