Product description

OMG. Code Name Verity’s heroine Julie stars in a country house mystery full of tension and emosh beauty. Pearls, love, murder; all the suspense of Agatha Christie in a book that keeps your heart on tenterhooks like a pearl dangling from a string. Summer, 1938. Julie is home for a last summer at her family’s ancestral mansion in Perthshire. But this is no idyllic return to childhood: it’s a summer of goodbyes. Her grandpa has died. The house is being sold. Everyone must leave – including a family of much-loved Highland travellers. When a London archivist is presumed murdered, and a treasure trove of pearls goes missing, Julie must solve this mystery before the wrong people get blamed…

  • Agatha Christie meets Downton Abbey in a thrilling country house mystery
  • Set a year before Code Name Verity and the start of World War Two
  • Introduces the irrepressible, unforgettable Julie as a sixteen-year-old girl
  • A powerful, evocative tale of Julie’s fight for justice in a changing world
