Product description

Guard your chocolate! Imagine living in a place where Mars bars are banned and sweeties are totally outlawed. Ugh – how depressing! In this miserable place, is it any wonder that gangsters trade in illegal sweeties? We can’t even blame them. Nelle Faulkner is a twelve-year-old private detective looking for her next client. So when notorious candy gangster Eddie de Menthe walks in and asks her to find a missing teddy bear, Nelle takes the case. But as soon as the teddy turns up, Eddie himself goes missing. Can Nelle track him down before all of them come to a sticky end?

  • A madcap crime caper by a best-loved fantasy writer
  • Written in a funny, fresh and engaging film noir style
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory meets Bugsy Malone
  • Lavie Tidhar won the World Fantasy Award in 2012
