Summary

Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are paying a visit to Hazel's family estate in hot, sultry Hong Kong. It may be the holidays, but the Detective Society is never far away from a mystery - and soon they are mixed up in a truly terrible crime.

Hazel's little half brother is kidnapped - and the family maid murdered. Daisy and Hazel know another life could be at stake if they don't crack this case quickly. And when Hazel is framed for the crime, the detectives are faced with their toughest mystery yet - one that will test them and their friendship more than ever before.

The sixth mystery from the best-selling, award-winning author of Murder Most Unladylike.

Best one yet

Loved meeting Hazel’s family in Hong Kong, and finding out more about life there. And Hazel and Daisy are as charming and clever as ever. If you’re looking for a pacy read with plenty of excitement, twists and turns, this is the book for you.

murder most unladylike keeps getting better

another beautiful story about family, growing up, believing yourself - and murder, of course! This book has made me cry, and I was really touched by Hazel's relationship with her family - specially her mother.
