AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Dear old Mrs Tuck has run the school canteen for years. But after a chain of nasty culinary upsets, she gets the chop and a slick new commercial caterer is appointed. Angelo Martinelli, junior private eye, smells a rat and not just the dead one in the canteen. Is it sabotage, or is it a red herring? Can The Angel get to the bottom of the mystery that has the whole school on the run?

'"Dead Red" is a saucy detective story from bestselling author Ruth Starke, full of humour and the kind of explosive jokes that children love.' (Publication summary)
