But the Detective Society is never far away from danger, and it’s clear there’s trouble afoot at the Rue.

Jealousy, threats and horrible pranks quickly spiral out of control – and then a body is found.

Now Hazel and Daisy must take centre stage and solve the crime . . . before the murderer strikes again.

Amazing! I like how the have went to London and performed in a play even though Hazel was shy

Very interesting murder mystery. I loved trying to work out who did it along with the main characters Hazel and Daisy.

AMAZING This book just so happens to be from my favourite series of all time and I love it. Personally, I think Robin Stevens is underrated. Only two of my freindss have heard of her.

I loved it! One of the best books ever written! About when Hazel and Daisy go to London to the Rue theatre and get wrapped up in another mystery with a huge twist at the end!


I love the murder mystery series


It is a gripping page-turner with a wonderful mystery plot. My favourite character is Hazel because she is very smart, caring and a brilliant detective. I would definitely recommend this book, because it hooks your in and builds up lots of tension. There is also a twist at the end!!

it was a brilliant book and I never expected the murderer would be rose tree!

My book was fiction and my favourite character was called Hazel. I liked Hazel because she felt like she didn't fit in because she had a different skin colour. I would recommend this book to my Mum because it is a brain twister and I think she would like it.

I found the plot easy enough to predict and solved the murder near the start of the story

My favourite character was Annie because she was very chatty when she was alive and she reminded me of a friend! I would recommend this book to people who love twisted endings as the murderer is very unexpected...

Really really love it and it’s really amazing. I love a mystery books and I would’ve given 100 stars

I thought that this was a brilliant book! I have already read the first six in the Murder Most Unladylike series and I had challenged myself to finish the series over the summer. It was interesting for it to be set in a theatre and I agree that a theatre is an excellent place to hold a fictional murder case! As always with Robin Stevens, it was gripping until the end and I thoroughly enjoyed going on the case with Daisy and Hazel. As mystery is my favourite genre (particularly murder mysteries) this was an amazing book for me.

Death in the Spotlight is great [Romeo & Juliet]

amazing, original and thrilling.

I liked this book because it had a twist at the end where the victim who they thought was murdered was actually the murderer! My favourite charactor is Daisy because she is a lot like me.

i really like this book as it is about young detectives

I love how the acting changed everybody and even some peoples appearance. I think it was amazing how well the murder was planned. I was floored at first I thought that Rose really was dead, and that someone else was the murderer I also did not realise that the body in the estuary might not of been Annies!

I loved this book, especially the twist at the end! I had not a clue what was going on though I tried to piece everything together! I recommend reading this, but read them in order due to the character developments in them all. The first book is Murder Most Unladylike.
