Anastasia is a completely average almost-eleven-year-old. That is, UNTIL her parents die in a tragic vacuum-cleaner accident. UNTIL she's rescued by two long-lost great-aunties. And UNTIL she's taken to their delightful and, er, "authentic" Victorian home, St. Agony's Asylum for the Criminally Insane. But something strange is going on at the asylum. Anastasia soon begins to suspect that her aunties are not who they say they are. So when she meets Ollie and Quentin, two mysterious brothers, the three join together to plot their great escape!

After their narrow escape from a nefarious kidnapping ring, Anastasia, Ollie, and Quentin (aka The League of Beastly Dreadfuls!) are looking forward to a relaxing vacation from danger! Intrigue! Catastrophe! Sadly, they're not going to get one. Because Anastasia makes the shocking discovery that her family is at the heart of a centuries-old scandal - a scandal that began with The Dastardly Deed. Before you can say "Bob's your uncle", the Dreadfuls have another mystery to solve: the Case of the Missing Grandfather.
