It's the sixth murder mystery for The Detective Society! This time though, one of them is the suspect...
Carries the Murder Most Unladylike mysteries into new heights . . . meticulously plotted and consistently delightful, and I can't recommend it enough (New Statesman)
When Hazel Wong's beloved grandfather passes away, Daisy Wells is all too happy to accompany her friend (and Detective Society Vice President) to Hazel's family estate in beautiful, bustling Hong Kong.
But when they arrive they discover something they didn't expect: there's a new member of the Wong family.
Daisy and Hazel think baby Teddy is enough to deal with, but as always the girls are never far from a mystery.
Tragedy strikes very close to home, and this time Hazel isn't just the detective. She's been framed for murder!
The girls must work together like never before, confronting dangerous gangs, mysterious suspects and sinister private detectives to solve the murder and clear Hazel's name - before it's too late . . .
In this, the latest instalment in the Murder Most Unladylike series, our intrepid detectives Daisy and Hazel find themselves on the hunt for kidnappers and murderers in Hazel's home city of Hong Kong. Called home from her English boarding school for her grandfather's funeral, Hazel takes her school friend Daisy with her on the journey, neither expecting that the skills of The Detective Society will be called upon to solve a crime affecting Hazel's own family. As with the other books in this very clever series, you'll be kept guessing the identity of the villain until the final chapter. This book is also a fascinating peek into the lives of high society Chinese families in the 1930s.

Robin Stevens (Author) Robin 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.
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 she worked at a children's publisher.
Robin is now a full-time author, and her books, The Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries and The Guggenheim Mystery, are both award-winning and bestselling.
