First Class Murder: A Murder Most Unladylike Mystery
Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are taking a holiday on the world-famous Orient Express - and it's clear that each of their fellow first-class passengers has something to hide. Even more intriguing: there is rumour of a spy in their midst.
Then, during dinner, there is a scream from inside one of the cabins. When the door is broken down, a passenger is found murdered, her stunni...more
By the beginning of November, tensions are running high, and it’s hardly a surprise when, after the fireworks display at Deepdean’s Bonfire Night Celebrations, Head Girl Elizabeth Hurst is found dead. She’s been hit on the head by a heavy object. But who could have done it? Read the rest athttp://robin-stevens.co.uk/blog/ (hide spoiler)]
The characters are a joy as always, especially Daisy and Hazel. Hazel has grown up a lot over the last two books and now she begins to realise it, leading to tension ...more
A great continuation of the series. Hazel and Daisy are great characters and the murder was full of mystery.
I did guess who the murder was before the end, (which I didn’t with the other two books) but it didn’t stop my enjoyment.
Also I did enjoy hearing that Daisy had read Murder on the Orient Express! Nice nod to Agatha Christie.
I just cannot get enough of Wells and Wong and The Detective Society. From the first delightful sentence I was hooked. Robin Stevens has such a wonderful way with words, she has managed to capture perfectly 1930's England and magic of Golden Age crime mysteries.
With a host of wonderful characters – a Russian Countess, a medium, a magician, a writer and an undercover detective – and an absolutely perfect setting – the Orient Express, I knew I was g ...more
This book took me back to when I was a kid reading Nancy Drew mystery books. It is set on the Orient Express and although there is a murder it is not anything like the book by Agitha Christie.
Hazel and Daisy are very likeable characters. They clash just enough to make the story interesting. And they get into some fixes that are for sure going to help solve the mystery but at the same time get them in trouble with Hazel's ...more
One of the good things about this series is that as it is ...more
Murder on the Orient Express, again. Only this time it’s Daisy and Hazel who are investigating. Discreetly mind you because Hazel’s father it quite adamant that Hazel is supposed to be a good influence on ...more
Hazel & Daisy continue to be great protagonists, growing from one book to the next and dealing with their previous experiences. They’re learning to manage their fears and their feelings as they are ...more
This is the third in a series, but could be enjoyed without reading the rest. Though I will be going back to read the others because it was such a delightful story!
It's the summer hols, so Mr Wong is taking Hazel and Daisy on a trip across Europe on the Orient Express. He's hoping he'll be able to keep them out of trouble: good girls don't do detective work, and he didn't send Hazel to a boarding school in England for her to keep getting herself in trouble.
Unfortunately for Mr Wong, a passenger on the Orient Express has other ideas, and it isn't long before We ...more
Daisy and Hazel are a bit distraught after the investigation at Daisy's home in Poison is Not Polite, so Mr. Wong has come from Hong Kong to take them to see Europe on the Orient Express. They are on the train with an odd assortment of characters, from the mysterious magician to an unkempt mystery writer to a Russian countess who feels another passenger has jewels that are rightfully hers. There is also "Mrs. Vitellius", who is really a government spy and a ...more
I’ve not read any Agatha Christie (for shame, I know!) but I imagine this book is a bit like Murder on the Orient Express junior. The girls are actually on the Orient Express and ...more
Stevens' third novel in her entirely delightful Wells & Wong s ...more
This was the first time where I guessed a few things correctly before Daisy and Hazel figured them out, but that didn't hinder my enjoyment of the book at all!
I know this was based on / inspired by Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express , and, because I've seen the movie and know the story, I was worried that it would spoil aspects of this book. Thank ...more
