Summary

A thrilling prequel story to the best-selling, award-winning A Good Girl's Guide to Murder!

A Good Girl's Guide to Murder is the winner of the British Book Awards' Children's Book of the Year 2020 and was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2020.

Pippa Fitz-Amobi is not in the mood for her friend’s murder mystery party. Especially one that involves 1920s fancy dress and pretending that their town, Little Kilton, is an island called Joy. But when the game begins, Pip finds herself drawn into the make-believe world of intrigue, deception and murder.

But as Pip plays detective, teasing out the identity of the killer clue by clue, the murder of the fictional Reginald Remy isn’t the only case on her mind....

Find out where it all began for Pip in this prequel to the best-selling A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder and Good Girl, Bad Blood.

Critic reviews

"Nail-biting, taut and pacy. Jackson [is] a homegrown thriller writer to watch...." (Guardian)

Nice addition to the series

I liked this little addition to the series. you get to know a bit more about the characters and motivations. I think it is better if you have read the good girl's guide to murder first actually, makes some things have more significance. Overall, a good short "murder" mystery.
