The Guggenheim Mystery

Written by Robin Stevens, Siobhan Dowd

The Guggenheim Mystery Synopsis

The long-awaited sequel to The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd, by bestselling and award-winning author Robin Stevens, creator of the Murder Most Unladylike series. My name is Ted Spark. I am 12 years and 281 days old. I have seven friends. Three months ago, I solved the mystery of how my cousin Salim disappeared from a pod on the London Eye. This is the story of my second mystery. This summer, I went on holiday to New York, to visit Aunt Gloria and Salim. While I was there, a painting was stolen from the Guggenheim Museum, where Aunt Gloria works. Everyone was very worried and upset. I did not see what the problem was. I do not see the point of paintings, even if they are worth millions of pounds. Perhaps that's because of my very unusual brain, which works on a different operating system to everyone else's. But then Aunt Gloria was blamed for the theft - and Aunt Gloria is family. And I realised just how important it was to find the painting, and discover who really had taken it.

The Guggenheim Mystery Press Reviews

A very perplexing mystery * Sun * Engaging and convincing * Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week * Gloriously inventive but still loyal to the world that Dowd created . . . What is most affecting is her ability to narrate the story through the eyes of a child with Asperger's - his every move is brilliant observed * Telegraph * Both a tremendous art-theft whodunit and a loving tribute to the much-missed author Siobhan Dowd . . . Stevens' deft, philosophical writing lends itself perfectly to a continuation of Dowd's work * Guardian *

Robin was born in California and grew up in an Oxford college, across the road from the house where Alice in Wonderland lived. She has been making up stories all her life. When she was twelve, her father handed her a copy of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and she realised that she wanted to be either Hercule Poirot or Agatha Christie when she grew up. She spent her teenage years at Cheltenham Ladies' College, reading a lot of murder mysteries and hoping that she'd get the chance to do some detecting herself (she didn't). She went to university, where ...
