Product description

Murder and mystery at an elite US boarding school. A dark riddle to blast up your pulse/test your brainpower. Can you solve any puzzle or crack any code? Quick! Apply to Ellingham Academy. This famous Vermont school was founded by Albert Ellingham, an early 20th century tycoon. He built a magical haven of riddles, twisting pathways and gardens. But when the school opened, his wife and daughter were kidnapped. There was only one clue: a mocking riddle citing murder, signed “Truly, Devious”. Nobody has ever solved the notorious crime. Now first-year Stevie Bell is starting at the school, and she plans to finally solve it. But she hasn’t reckoned with a killing, and Truly Devious rising from the grave…
