For children aged 12 and over

A carefree summer holiday in a quiet seaside village turns into a scary experience for Danae and her friends when Ada Lontou, a well-known investigative journalist, vanishes. Lontou’s missing jewellery soon turns up in the room of Larissa, the Russian chambermaid at the Côte d’Azur Hotel. Taken into custody, Larissa refuses to say anything in her own defence. Nobody who knows her believes that she is a thief, and Danae and her friends band together decide to find out what is behind the disappearance and theft. Though Inspector Gavrilis is more accustomed to dealing with minor offences, he proves capable of handling this crime, but it is the evidence gathered by the youngsters that finally helps him solve this mystery. A pacy narrative that touches on some of the grimmer sides of contemporary life, The Mystery of the Côte d’Azur makes exciting reading for children aged twelve and over.
