About this title

Synopsis:

The Clockwork Sparrow meets Downton Abbey

When Rose Raventhorpe's beloved butler is found (gasp!) murdered in the hallway of her own house, she's determined to uncover the culprit. Especially since he's the third butler to die in a week!

Rose's investigation leads her on a journey into a hidden world of grave robbers and duelling butlers, flamboyant magicians and the city's ancient feline guardians.

Knives aren't just for cutting cucumber sandwiches, you know . . .

Review:

Grave robbers, magicians and ancient feline guardians will keep young readers gripped. (South Wales Evening Post)

Fun to read, this is a sprightly told tale of murder and trickery with a twisty plot and a cast of unlikely characters led by the smart and determined Rose Raventhorpe. (Julia Eccleshare Love Reading 4 Kids - Julia Eccleshare's Pick of the Month)

...for me, the stand-out element is the amount of humour in the story - caricatures abound from the butlers and their gloves, to Emily, Rose's friend in mourning. A historical giggle with darkness and magic. (Minerva Reads)

This stunning debut by Australian author Janine Beacham is definitely one for the curious, who love stories that are a little dark and a little different (Read it Daddy)

This is an unputdownable, exciting first book in a new series: Rose Raventhope Investigates, full of surprises and seeped in Victorian atmosphere with interesting, well-rounded characters. It will keep you guessing to the very end. (Debbie Williams Primary Times)

This is a funny, page turner of a book... (Making Them Readers)
