Rose Campion and the Stolen Secret by Lyn Gardner

Rose Campion escapes the tedium of Miss Pecksniff’s Academy for Young Ladies, and heads straight for home at Campion’s Palace of Varieties and Wonders, where Thomas and the theatre cast and crew are her family, having been abandoned on its steps as a baby.

When an old friend and actor goes missing, Rose is convinced something is amiss, and sets out with her friends to solve the mystery. But the more secrets that are uncovered, the more deadly the trail becomes…

Murder, mystery and music hall mayhem combine in a gripping tale that will leave you guessing right to the end. Deftly described settings of dingy backstreets, a desolate graveyard and the delightful Campion’s provide the perfect backdrop for a cast of colourful characters. From resourceful, resilient Rose and fatherly Thomas, and to the menacing Josiah Pinch and unmotherly Lizzie Gawkin, all spring to life whether on or off the stage.
