Dead Man’s Cove (A Laura Marlin Mystery) by Lauren St John

Published by Orion Children’s Books

This is an all new book for a series, (continued in august 2011) called the Laura Marlin mysteries and is a brilliant example of a children’s detective mystery.

Laura Marlin is a small girl between the age of 9-11 who embarks on a dangerous mission when she is sent from an orphanage to her newly found uncle Calvin Redferns’ house in St Ives, Cornwall.

Her uncle seems intent on erasing his past- no photos or even magnets from a vacation can be found in his home!

Getting weirder by the second, whilst Laura was taking a trip on her local beach, a message in a bottle is found on the sand. When she wrote a reply, Laura realises that this was going to be dangerous but it was a risk that she was willing to take…

Can’t wait for the next one in this series…
