From The Publisher*A breakout new detective series, from the author of the spine-tingling SCARLET AND IVY series, beautifully illustrated by Hannah Peck. Violet Veil wants nothing more than to prove her worth and become her father's apprentice at Veil & Sons Undertakers. And one rain-soaked night she gets her chance when she meets a boy, Oliver, who is wandering around the graveyard. Only, the last time Violet saw Oliver, he was indoors and very much dead, waiting to be buried. Violet has just found her first case, and it doesn't get bigger than this: can she, with the help of her dog, Bones, help Oliver solve his own ‘murder'?
Review Quote*Praise for the Scarlet and Ivy series: "I loved this book as it is a true page-turning, nail-biting mystery. The author has very cleverly hidden clues in the story and lets us solve the mystery as well. I read it in less than a day. It is gripping and keeps you begging for more." Guardian.com, Children's Reviews. ‘I absolutely loved this book and I'd give it 6 out of 5 stars, it's one of the best storylines I've ever come across' Guardian.com, Children's Reviews.
Biographical NoteSophie Cleverly was born in Bath in 1989. She wrote her first story at the age of four, though it used no punctuationand was essentially one long sentence.Thankfully, things have improved somewhat since then, and she has earned a BA in Creative Writing and MAin Writing for Young People from Bath Spa University.Now working as a full-time writer, Sophie lives with her partner in Wiltshire, where she has a house full of books and a garden full of crows. The books largely consist of fantasy and historical novels; many of them for children and youngadults. You probably don't want to know what the crows consist of.
