Watch the trailer for The Secret Detectives by Ella Risbridger

Next month we’re very excited to be publishing The Secret Detectives by Ella Risbridger – a hugely gripping historical mystery, inspired by The Secret Garden and the golden age of crime writing, from an incredible new voice in children’s fiction.

And today we’re sharing the official trailer for the book!

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. Onboard the S.S. Mariana, 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.

Read the first chapter of the book here:

The Secret Detectives will be in bookshops, and available online, in June – you can order a copy from Waterstones here, Bookshop.org here, or Amazon here.
