Lorna has been dead long enough to know the Rules. But that doesn't stop her showing up at her little sister's high school production of Hipster Hamlet. But when she arrives, a lighting rig comes crashing down on the lead cast member mid-performance. All fingers point to Lorna's little sister, Emma, and it's up to The Dead Girls Detective Agency to find the real culprit. Unless Em's not as innocent as she looks? Charlotte wants to help Lorna prove her sister's innocence, but she's completely distracted. Not only is her ghostly-self suspended in this New York-limbo-hotel, she is having to deal with the fact that the very alive love of her life has moved on. And then there's the cute dead boy Edison, who seems to be acting nice all of a sudden. But is Charlotte ready for a new boyfriend, and one with such a murky past? Praise for The Dead Girls Detective Agency: 'Mean Girls meets The Lovely Bones.' Grazia 'Full of smart, funny one-liners and observations that had me giggling like a teenager.' - Sunday Express 'A spooky teen thriller with the glam of Gossip Girl' Cosmopolitan
