New evidence has Kirby digging back into his earliest case as an Inspector – that of a missing girl who was never found. Inexplicably, her school bag, including her diary, has turned up looking as new as it would have done when it went missing along with Maisie, ten years ago. Her diary talks about a wall no one else can see, a door she has never been able to open, and the garden she just knows is on the other side.
Did Maisie finally open the door? And what did she find the other side? Kirby, Sh

This book is so much fun, but it's a bit creepy at times. There are also some interesting revelations (Oh boy! I could have never guessed...). Looking forward for the next.

Another knockout

Once again a good story, fun characters and plenty of snark to make me laugh. I'm really hoping there will be more books in this series. I do strongly suggest reading the books in order. No cliffhangers but the characters grow and the stories build on each other. Enjoy
