Product Details


“Fast, funny, and furious, this book has bags of humour, bags of heart, and a proper murder mystery at its core. Alice Bell is one to watch!”
—Janice Hallett, author of The Appeal

“Read this fabulous book, you will not regret it!” 
—Ben Aaronovitch, author of the Rivers of London series

“Bell shines in her sharp, funny debut. . . . The adroit plotting, which cannily plays with mystery tropes, is amply leavened with humor. Fans . . . will be eager for more adventures from Claire and Sophie.”
Publishers Weekly

“For fans of murder mysteries, a cold case, and a friendly sleuthing ghost!”
Jamie Canaves, Book Riot

—Stuart MacBride, author of No Less the Devil
