First Class Murder by Robin Stevens

Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are taking a holiday through Europe on the world-famous Orient Express. From the moment the girls step aboard, it's clear that each of their fellow first-class passengers has something to hide. Even more intriguing: rumour has it that there is a spy in their midst.

Then, during dinner, there is a bloodcurdling scream from inside one of the cabins. When the door is broken down, a passenger is found murdered, her stunning ruby necklace gone. But the killer is nowhere to be seen - almost as if they had vanished into thin air.

Daisy and Hazel are faced with their first ever locked-room mystery - and with competition from several other sleuths, who are just as determined to crack the case as they are.

My thoughts
Just as fabulous as I'd hoped. I thoroughly enjoyed the latest instalment in the Wells and Wong series. I loved that it was set on the orient express and I loved the comment it had to say about the snobbery and class system the book is set in. As with previous books I was kept guessing throughout and needed to keep reading as fast as possible as I needed to know what happened next.

Bring on book four!
