Mystery and tigers on the (almost) Orient Express.
‘You’re Kate! Special Correspondent! Daughter of one of the most successful Arctic explorers in the world! If you don’t find a way out of this and solve this mystery, I’ll do it myself!’
Young detective Kate and her mouse-accomplice Rupert are on board a train, to visit Kate’s mum in the Arctic.
But as soon as the train departs, mysterious things start happening.
A packet of ginger nuts goes missing . . .
A collection of gymnastics trophies is stolen . . .
And some ancient scrolls disappear . . .
Fellow passenger Madame Maude seems the most likely culprit, until a surprising – and delicious – twist turns the whole investigation on its head.
First in a witty three-book series about a bold young detective and a colourful cast of suspects, in a setting worthy of Agatha Christie.
