Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are in Egypt, where they are taking a cruise along the Nile. They are hoping to see some ancient temples and a mummy or two; what they get, instead, is murder. 

Also travelling on the SS Hatshepsut is a mysterious society called the Breath of Life: a group of genteel English ladies and gentlemen, who believe themselves to be reincarnations of the ancient pharaohs. Three days into the cruise, their leader, Theodora Miller, is found dead in her cabin, stabbed during the night. It soon becomes clear to Daisy and Hazel that Theodora's timid daughter, Hephzibah, who is prone to sleepwalking, is being framed. And within the society, everyone has a reason to want Theodora dead....

Daisy and Hazel leap into action and begin to investigate their most difficult case yet. But there is danger all around, and only one of the Detective Society will make it home alive....

Great

I love this series , I have all the books and Audible books. I read this in real life first, then listened to it. Katie Leung has done an amazing job on some of the other books in this series but she has changed her pronunciation of things and added accents to characters who appeared in other books of this series whom had no accent in earlier books. Overall, the book is amazing, set in Egypt and is a gripping story. I would of never guessed the murder. I love Daisy and Amina’s relationship in this book and the secret note Amina wrote to Daisy in end. I won’t spoil it but some letters are in caps when they shouldn’t be and if you put them all together it spells out a message. Ending is very shocking and I almost cried. For ages 9-15

I give it 4 1/2 out of 5

I thought it was a bit cliché but had been written well so the story was still very good!

Amazing, and a very fitting ending to MMU! Detective Society Forever, as Daisy and Hazel would say.

Thrilling!

Absolutely amazing book! I thought the storyline was very well done, making the readers believe the crime was committed by Heppy at the beginning, and then as they dug deeper into the investigation it became more and more interesting. I couldn’t quite believe it when a horrifying thing happened, but I was so relieved when everything turned out okay! I can’t wait to listen to the mini mysteries!
I recommend this book for 9-13 years, and it’s a brilliant book if you’re looking for something mysterious and gripping to listen to in your free time. 10/10, absolutely recommend!!! Xx
