Description

‘Sharply drawn… convincingly humorous and stroppy’ – The Guardian

“Finding a dead body at my new school was a pretty rubbish way to start. But actually getting mixed up in the case? I was bound to get into deep, deep trouble for that!”

Murder comes to Hanbridge High, and three Year Seven misfits want to solve the crime:

New boy Jonno hopes playing detective will convince his parents that moving to Hanbridge was a big mistake.
School reporter Lydia thinks her news story will sweep everything else off the front page.
And young carer Daniel needs the police to arrest the right culprit – for his mum’s sake.

They may not be friends, but they’re about to become. . .The Detention Detectives.

‘Jardine mixes laugh-out-loud humour with plenty of super sleuthing!’ – Lucy Brandt, author of Leonora Bolt

Misfits and murder meet in this brilliantly fun new mystery series by debut author Lis Jardine. A perfect next read for fans of The High-Rise Mysteries, Anisha, Accidental Detective and Murder Most Unladylike.
