A Pocket Full of Murder
A magical murder mystery by R. J. Anderson set in the fantasy city of Tarreton. When Isaveth Breck’s father is wrongfully accused of murder, Isaveth and her sisters are left to fend for themselves. With no money coming in and hardly any food to eat, Isaveth is determined to prove her father’s innocence, so they can be together as a family once again. But where will she start? Along comes Quiz, an eccentric eye patch-wearing street boy. Together they set out to find the real murderer and to save Isaveth’s father from execution. But the list of suspects is growing and the chances of finding the culprit is becoming more elusive. Will Isaveth ever prove her father’s innocence in time…?
A tale of friendship and families, murder and magic, this is great book for confident readers. The mystery element evolves cleverly and keeps you guessing until the end. A great read for 10 to 13 years olds. Pauline.
