Rendezvous in Russia by Lauren St.John
From Cornwall to Russia. Laura, her faithful husky Skye and Tariq are whirled into a breathtaking mystery adventure when they join the film crew on the set of The Aristocratic Thief about an art heist that could never be pulled off in real life. Or could it? When a priceless Leonardo da Vinci painting is stolen in broad daylight Laura suspects the evil Straight A criminal masterminds are not far away.
Adventure and drama just seem to find Laura even when she's not looking for it, this is the fourth title in the mystery adventure series about Laura Marlin, an 11-year-old ace detective.
