Death in the Spotlight




Another thrilling (and rather theatrical) murder mystery from bestselling author Robin Stevens.

Someone will take their final bow . . .

Fresh from their adventures in Hong Kong, Hazel Wong and Daisy Wells have returned to England. But they're not going straight back to school - first they're staying with Daisy's uncle Felix in London. But when London life gets a bit too exciting, the girls are packed off to the Rue Theatre to face an entirely new challenge: acting.

But adventure has a nasty habit of catching up with the Detective Society, and it soon becomes clear there is trouble afoot at the Rue. Jealousy, threats and horrible pranks quickly spiral out of control - and then a body is found. Now Hazel and Daisy must take centre stage and solve the crime . . . before the murderer strikes again.

About the Authors

Robin Stevens

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. When it occurred to her that she was never going to be able to grow her own spectacular walrus moustache, she decided that Agatha Christie was the more achievable option.

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 worked in children's publishing. She is now a full-time writer.

Robin now lives in Oxford with her husband, and her pet bearded dragon, Watson.
