"This is fun escapism, with fresh descriptions, period detail, sympathy for outsiders and underlying wisdom"

Stevens’s Murder Most Unladylike series, in which the detectives are rich girls at Deepdean, a boarding school that cares about the proper way to pass the salt, has now sold half a million copies. Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are teenagers in this eighth mystery, set in 1936. Daisy believes herself the mastermind, with Hazel her Watson, although modest Hazel’s chronicle reveals she has the most insight... This is fun escapism, with fresh descriptions, period detail, sympathy for outsiders and underlying wisdom.
