The final book in The Trapdoor Mysteries, a series about Tally, a code-breaking, animal-loving girl and her best friend, a squirrel named Squill, who solve mysteries with the help of a secret library...

Tally was once a servant girl at Mollett Manor - as well as the Secret Keeper of the magical library hidden underneath the manor's grounds. Along with Squill the squirrel, she used the enchanted books in the library to solve crimes.

Then Tally finds out a secret about her past, her entire life changes. Suddenly she's travelling aboard a huge ship on her way to New York to try and find her mother.

When valuable items go missing from passengers' cabins on the ship, everyone expects Tally to be able to catch the culprit. But will Tally be able to solve the mystery without the magic of the Secret Library?

Biographical Notes

Abie Longstaff is the eldest of six children and grew up in Australia, Hong Kong and France. She knows all about squabbling and bossing younger sisters around so she began her career as a barrister. She started writing when her children were born. Her books include The Fairytale Hairdresser series and The Magic Potions Shop books. She has a life-long love of fairy tales and mythology and her work is greatly influenced by these themes.

Abie got the idea for the Trapdoor Mysteries from her parents' house in France. The house is big and old, with lots of rooms and outbuildings. In one of the bedrooms, there is a secret entrance hidden in a fireplace. It leads to a room that was used by the French Resistance during the war. It was the perfect idea for a book!

Abie lives with her family by the seaside in Hove.
