Description

Author: Maureen Johnson


In New York Times bestselling author Maureen Johnson’s second novel in the
Truly Devious series, there are more twists and turns than Stevie Bell can
imagine. No answer is given freely, and someone will pay for the truth with
their life. The Truly Devious case—an unsolved kidnapping and triple murder
that rocked Ellingham Academy in 1936—has consumed Stevie for years. It’s
the very reason she came to the academy. But then her classmate was
murdered, and her parents quickly pull her out of school. For her safety,
they say. She must move past this obsession with crime. Stevie’s willing to
do anything to get back to Ellingham, be back with her friends, and solve
the Truly Devious case. Even if it means making a deal with the despicable
Senator Edward King. And when Stevie finally returns, she also returns to
David: the guy she kissed, and the guy who lied about his identity—Edward
King’s son. But larger issues are at play. Where did the murderer hide?
What’s the meaning of the riddle Albert Ellingham left behind? And what,
exactly, is at stake in the Truly Devious affair? The Ellingham case isn’t
just a piece of history—it’s a live wire into the present. Praise for Book
One: “The Agatha Christie-like ecosystem pairs with lacerating contemporary
wit, and alternating past and present scenes makes for a multilayered,
modern detective story.” —New York Times Book Review “Remember the first
time reading Harry Potter and knowing it was special? There’s that same
sense of magic in the introduction of teen Sherlock-in-training Stevie
Bell.” —USA Today (four stars) “Be still, my Agatha-Christie-loving beating
heart.” —Bustle
