A brand-new short story collection in the number-one bestselling, award-winning Murder Most Unladylike series, featuring murder, mystery and missions from the Detective Society.
Robin Stevens was born in California and grew up in an Oxford college, across the road from the house where Alice in Wonderland lived. She has been making up stories all her life. When she was twelve, her father handed her a copy of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and she realised that she wanted to be either Hercule Poirot or Agatha Christie when she grew up. She spent her teenage years at Cheltenham Ladies' College, reading a lot of murder mysteries and hoping that she'd get the chance to do some detecting herself (she didn't). She went to university, where she studied crime fiction, and then she worked at a children's publisher. Robin is now a full-time author and the creator of the internationally award-winning and bestselling Murder Most Unladylike series, starring Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong, and the brand-new Ministry of Unladylike Activity. She still hopes she might get the chance to do some detecting of her own one day. She lives in Oxford.
Few series can maintain the thrills and pace over nine books, but Stevens has done so with aplomb . . . Fiendishly clever plotting, a gorgeous Egyptian backdrop, a startling denouement and romance for both our heroines. A triumphant finale for a much-loved series * The Bookseller *
