Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens, read by Gemma Chan.

When Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong set up their very own secret detective agency at Deepdean School for Girls, they struggle to find any truly exciting mysteries to investigate. (Unless you count the case of Lavinia's missing tie. Which they don't.)

Then Hazel discovers the Science Mistress, Miss Bell, lying dead in the gym. She assumes it was a terrible accident - but when she and Daisy return five minutes later, the body has disappeared. Now Hazel and Daisy not only have a murder to solve; they have to prove one happened in the first place.

Determined to get to the bottom of the crime before the killer strikes again (and before the police can get there first, naturally), Hazel and Daisy must hunt for evidence, spy on their suspects and use all the cunning and intuition they can muster. But will they succeed? And can their friendship stand the test?

Absolutely amazing

This book is extremely yummy. If all the books were food this book will be the most delicious hot cocoa with caramel drizzle. Robin Stevens is probably one of my top 5 writers and Gemma chan narrated it beautifully. It is extremely clever to choose a Cantonese speaking narrator to narrate this. I live in HK myself and I felt the same when I went to England A few years ago for a year. Robin has a great understanding of children. Her books are just right for me. Not for 8 years olds, and probably not for over 16 year olds either. But, hey,I love it!

Jolly good fun

Set in an English boarding school in the 1930s, this charming mystery is as enjoyable for adults as for teens. Gemma Chan (of Humans TV series) narrates this fun-filled (apart from the murders, obviously) romp, providing a glimpse of life in posh 1930s boarding schools.

The main character is from Hong Kong and the book even occasionally subtly and deftly weaves in elements of the main character coping with racism and bullying, but it doesn't feel remotely preachy or scary. Just genuine. A fast, fun read, perfect for when you just want to relax with a good yarn.

Not worth the effort

It was reasonably well read but it was bland and uninteresting and not a very satisfying experience. I will not buy any other books in this series.

Good and Enjoyable

This book is very enjoyable but it does remind me of a book a teen would read. It's light and easy to listen to. The only issue I had is that there was a part in it where they get a ouija board out to contact the dead and personally I don't like anything like that.
The narrator Gemma Chan was good also.

Gripping

This was an entertaining read, with the plot changes being spectacular.

A very well-designed ending and a clever story overall.

It was very well read with good character voices.

Review written by three brothers aged 12 to 9, having listened on tenterhooks to the whole story on a long car journey.
