  • These Agatha-Christie-indebted tales involve detective duo Daisy Wells and her sidekick Hazel Wong, wealthy schoolgirls from England and Hong Kong. In the first book, they investigated a murder at their boarding school. This time, Daisy's family's stately home - a hotbed of jealousy and greed - provides a rich cast of suspects when it's not just the cake candles that are snuffed out at a birthday tea party. Emotional conflict, logical deduction and the period setting make for an entertaining, nostalgic brainteaser
