Agent Zaiba Investigates: The Smuggler’s Secret by Annabelle Sami

It is so wonderful to be back with Zaiba, Ali and Poppy in their next mystery! This modern-day Nancy Drew has everything it takes to be a great detective, using all of her observation skills, quick-thinking and powers of deduction that help her to see things other don’t.

The Snow Leopard Detective Agency is heading off on an overnight expedition to Chesil Bay on the Jurassic Coast with their school history club. Divers have recovered a shipwreck containing a priceless artefact. The children can’t wait to find out what it is and where it came from.

Smugglers, a threatening note, fossils and a journey out to sea on a glass bottom boat lead the detectives on a puzzling adventure which has something to do with the East India Company in the 1830s. Who is trying to steal the artefact and what can they do to protect it? With so many potential suspects, real danger and difficult clues, readers are left guessing right until the very end.

Thank you to Little Tiger for this brilliant book!
