Demelza and the Spectre Detectors

Holly Rivers

Chicken House

Demelza loves science, but she’s also inherited a distinctly un-scientific skill: Spectre Detecting – summoning the ghosts of the dead. When Grandma is kidnapped by a mysterious villain, she knows Spectre Detecting has something to do with it. Can Demelza solve the deadly mystery?

The first book in this warm and eccentric middle-grade mystery series by debut author Holly Rivers.
