The Mystery of the Missing Finger (Blue A/NC 4B) by Josh Lacey

This title is part of Bug Club, the first whole-school reading programme to combine books with an online reading world to teach today's children to read. In this Year 5 Blue A (NC level 4b) fiction novel ...A stately home, a stolen painting, a thief dressed in black with a missing finger: these are the elements in a mystery that Inspector Stamp thinks is an open-and-shut case. The butler did it! Matt and his French exchange partner, Veronique, are far from convinced. The hunt is on to find the real thief!
