The Agathas

‘Part Agatha Christie, part Veronica Mars, and completely entertaining.’ Karen M. McManus

Kathleen Glasgow Liz Lawson

A Waterstones Best Teenage & YA Book of 2022!

The most popular girl in school is dead. And everyone’s blaming the wrong guy.

After falling from grace last summer, Agatha Christie-obsessed Alice Ogilvie needs to stay out of trouble. While smart and reclusive Iris Adams just wants to get the hell out of Castle Cove.
But now they have a murder to solve. There are clues the police are ignoring, a list of suspects a mile long and some very dangerous cliffs.
Amateur detectives Alice and Iris are about to uncover just how many secrets their sleepy seaside town is hiding…

Erin A. Craig, author of House of Salt and Sorrows

Jessica Goodman, author of They’ll Never Catch Us


Cosmopolitan, best new releases

‘A twisty missing-girl mystery with two sharp-witted teen detectives you’ll instantly root for. Perfect for fans of Holly Jackson, Karen M. McManus and Kara Thomas!’ 

Kit Frick, author of I Killed Zoe Spanos

‘This whip-smart novel had me hooked from page one, with wisecracking teen detectives, Agatha Christie references galore, and a killer mystery. I freakin’ loved this book, and in my opinion, Alice Ogilvie and Iris Adams can definitely sit with Nancy Drew and Veronica Mars at lunch.’

Kate Williams, author of Never Coming Home

‘A generous dollop of homage to the grande dame of mystery plus buckets of clues and conundrums to savor.’
