Calling all fans of Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow and Murder Most Unladylike ... Funny, exciting, moving and unguessable - here's a brilliant and addictive new mystery with a heroine you'll love. London, 1909 - a time of scientific progress and new freedoms. Ever since the death of her parents, twelve-year old Connie Carew has lived with her aunts - downtrodden Dorothea, and spinster Sylvie, who 'sees things' but is much sharper than she appears - in a large house in Kensington. Connie has her sights set on becoming an anthropologist when she grows up and travel the world. Her first mystery is upon her already: is the girl who turns up at the front door really her long-lost cousin Ida? If she isn't, who is she? And who is behind the pretence? Full of villains, cunning plots, twisted motives, this page-turner will keep you guessing to the end. And best of all, there are more Connie Carew mysteries to come.
