About the Book

Since his dad literally did a vanishing act (he's a magician!), Jay Patel has turned detective, and now, with the help of his ghostly grandpa, he's on a new case -- a murder in a fancy country hotel where the cause of death appears to be -- soup!

While Jay is surrounded by suspects, Grandad has his own informants -- the ghosts haunting the hotel. But will they catch the killer before it's too ladle?

David Walliams meets Agatha Christie in the soup-er second book of a new laugh-out-loud, weird-and-wacky mystery series for younger readers, by the author of Thorfinn the Nicest Viking.

About the Book

A boy and his ghost Grandad are detectives in a good old-fashioned murder mystery.
