Product Description

Review

... a well told story full of excitement and adventure. There is plenty of information about farms and racing to please animal lovers, and a plot which is sufficiently realistic for readers to dream of solving similar mysteries themselves. Fans new and old of Laura Marlin will thoroughly enjoy it, and will be keeping their fingers crossed that Laura will soon be back to beat the bad guys and solve further crimes. (THE BOOK BAG)

Lauren St John delivers a fast-moving plot filled with doubles and doppelgangers in this exhilerating read. As always, Laura Marlin makes for a redoubtable heroine who can teach the professionals a thing or two about mystery solving. (BOOKTRUST)

Winner of the Blue Peter Book Award, Lauren St John adds another dramatic story to her excellent Laura Marlin Mysteries... Lauren St John provides a vivid setting of the Hermitage for this fast moving adventure. (Julia Eccleshare LOVEREADING)

One of the best series around for younger readers keeps getting better. Highly recommended as a very cleverly plotted adventure. (THE BOOKBAG)

Book Description

Format: Paperback
A fast-paced adventure story set on Bodmin Moor, featuring girl detective, Laura Marlin. The book has all the elements that children love in a story: mystery, adventure, excitement and suspense.
Reading this adventure story brought back memories of childhood, and reading my much loved Enid Blyton books.

Although Lauren st John's books are some of my favourites, this didn't have quite as much of an element of mystery as the others, so really is just an add-on. Still, a good book to read.
The other Lauren st John books are must-reads! In order of my preference: Laura marlin mysteries, one dollar horse trilogy, white giraffe series. Great books!!! 😊📚💜

I found this book very exciting and I read it so quickly. As at the very beginning of the school year we went to Bodmin for s wrt walk up it I found it even more easy to believe! I was sure the beast of Bodmin would catch them at any second!
I love all lauren st John books (especially the one dollar horse series)!

A short but mysterious read. A brilliant scenario - a midnight picnic on Bodmin Moor. Bring on camping, fog, accidents, mysterious disappearances and lack of phone signal. Love the characters. A very enjoyable book.

As always, this laura marlin mystery was absolutely great. However its wandering off lauren st johns usual style of mystery story. It reveals all of laura and tarige's classmates and is based on a midnight feast/camping trip. Overall its an exiting read and i would recomend to young audiences.
