Today we’re delighted to share a brand new audiobook edition of The Secret Detectives, by Ella Risbridger – a hugely gripping historical mystery, inspired by The Secret Garden and the golden age of crime writing, perfect for 9-12-year old readers.
When Isobel Petty is orphaned, she finds herself being taken away from her home in India and sent to live with a distant uncle in England. On board the S.S. Marianna, she witnesses a shocking act – somebody being thrown overboard in the middle in the night. But when the ship’s captain insists that nobody is missing, Isobel and her two new reluctant friends must solve two mysteries – the identities of both the murderer and the victim – before they reach England and the culprit has the chance to escape.
