“What I want,” Laura declared, “is to have a life packed with excitement like some of the characters in my books.”
When orphaned Laura Marlin is sent from the children’s home to live with her uncle in Cornwall, she dreams of a life of excitement just like the characters in her favourite detective novels. But when she gets to Uncle Calvin’s spooky house, she is confronted with mysteries. Nothing is as it seems. Is Tariq, the shopkeeper’s silent son, a friend or an enemy? Why does her uncle seem so intent on hiding his past? And why is everyone so afraid of Dead Man’s Cove? When Laura finds a message in a bottle, she starts to investigate. But this deadly quest will test her detective skills to the limit – and put her on a collision course with villains who will stop at nothing to get their own way. Laura’s adventures begin in this first captivating mystery from the bestselling author of the White Giraffe series.
