October 2016 Book of the Month | In a nutshell: Nobody beats Ruby Redfort! | Blink and You Die is the very last book in Lauren Child’s superb Ruby Redfort girl detective series, and what a finale it is! Someone, someone even more dangerous and ruthless than Ruby’s arch enemy The Count, is out to get Ruby. What should she do? Stay indoors and wait for someone else to do something? Or go out there, root out the trouble and save herself? With Ruby, there’s only ever one option: death or glory! A typically fabulous story of revelations, mushrooms and double crossings follows culminating in a wonderful scene that has some characters literally hanging by an eyelash, and all loose ends elegantly tied up. No-one could ever match Ruby for brains, panache or pzazz, and she will be sorely missed!
There are wonderfully independent girl sleuths in Robin Stevens’s popular Murder Most Unladylike series, while Caleb Crisp’s Ivy Pocket books are inventive, stylish, idiosyncratic mysteries too. ~ Andrea Reece
Blink and You Die by Lauren Child
Ruby Redfort: Undercover agent, ace code-breaker, thirteen-year-old genius. In the sixth and final book, the stakes are higher than ever; no one is safe and even the most dangerous criminals are running scared.
Luckily, Ruby’s parents are as blissfully unaware as ever and Hitch, Mrs Digby and Clancy are on hand to help. But can Ruby wisecrack her way out of danger and outwit her enemies?
In this taut new adventure, Ruby must root out a hidden adversary, crack complex new codes and solve a decades-old mystery. Along the way, she encounters rare mushrooms, UFOs, yellow snakes and more than a few red herrings! Nothing is as it seems and as Ruby gets closer to the truth, she uncovers a deadly trail of deceit and is forced to question everything she believes to be true
