Overall winner of the Blue Peter Book Award 2011 and winner of the Favourite Story Category. - A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection - Shortlisted for the Galaxy Children's Book of the Year Award 2011.

From the author of the much-loved White Giraffe series comes an exciting four-part adventure series featuring Laura Marlin, an 11 year old ace detective.  As with Lauren’s earlier animal series, this is brilliantly written with its terrific prose and atmospheric descriptions of the Cornish coast and is a real page-turner too.  Laura longs to be adopted and eventually her wish seems to come true and she moves to Cornwall – to Dead Man’s Cove - to live with her uncle.  Her new life however, seems to be full of secrets and as the mysteries pile up she finds she must put her keen detective mind to full use.  Accompanied by Skye, a three-legged husky she sets out on an adventure to uncover the mysteries – including a message in a bottle - of Dead Man’s Cove.
