About this item

Now in paperback, a second comic case to test the brains and bravery of the intrepid Wollestonecraft detectives--Ada Bryon Lovelace and Mary Shelley.  The Wollstonecraft Detective Agency was supposed to be a secret constabulary, but after the success of their first case, all of London knows that Lady Ada and Mary are the girls to go to if you have a problem.   Their latest case is a puzzler indeed: A dead father, a missing will, an escaped lunatic, and a hasty engagement. How does it all connect? With the help (and sometimes hindrance) of their sisters Jane and Allegra, these girls break codes, break a girl out of the hospital, and break up a very bad betrothal.   Praise for The Case of the Girl in Grey:   "Mystery fans ... will relish the girls' romp around the stately home; discovery of an encrypted clue (in the crypt, of course); and unraveling of the mystery."--Booklist  Praise for The Case of the Missing Moonstone: "An enjoyable plot, resourceful heroines and fun writing." --Wall Street Journal  "Smart and witty. . . . The detectives in training use quick thinking, book smarts, and social know-how to find a stolen gemstone. Comical narration and dialogue will charm readers thoroughly." --Publishers Weekly  “Equal parts laughs and adventure, this lively mystery will keep you guessing till the end!” –Discovery Girls
