Daisy and Hazel are back at Deepdean for another term after their adventures on the Orient Express. But the year is shaping up to be unpleasant under the regime of the new Head Girl, Elizabeth Hurst, and her five Prefects. When Elizabeth is found dead after a fireworks display, Daisy and Hazel team up once more to solve the case. School staff believes Elizabeth’s death to be an accident, but the Wells & Wong Detective Society believe otherwise – plenty of girls had a motive to murder Elizabeth, and the girls mean to find out who did it.
The more of these books I read, the more I love this series. I know they’re hitting US shelves a few years behind the UK releases, but I hope this series continues for a long time!
