I loved the second book in the Cinnamon Stevens crime series. Twelve year old Cinnamon and her best friends Cossie and Meera battle bullies and ghosts in this clever adventure story. Filled with clues and culture from Dandenong to Walhalla it’s a fun ride!

This is the follow up book to Cinnamon Steven's Crimebuster, and is a fantastic book.

Cinnamon and her friends discover a mystery while on camp to Walhalla.

A fantastic story for crime loving kids and grown ups.
