Crime & Mystery Fiction Humorous Stories

The second instalment in a brilliantly clever, funny and highly illustrated murder mystery series

The most troublesome thing about being a detective is that it is almost impossible to go on holiday.

When Bonnie Montgomery finally gets a break from cracking cases as her alter-ego, Montgomery Bonbon, something terribly fishy happens the moment she and Grampa Banks arrive on Odde Island for half-term – and it's not just the smell of the harbour. There's been a mysterious death at Leerie Lighthouse, and what everyone assumed was an accident is setting Bonbon's moustache all a-quiver: a sure sign that something is Highly Suspicious.

When a second death takes place on the other side of the island, Bonnie is sure the two are connected. But can she solve this case alone, or will she need double the detectives to solve double the murder?


For any readers who LOVE whodunnits, Montgomery Bonbon is the book to read! The funniest detectives in children’s fiction – I loved it so much. Put on your fake moustaches and join the murdery fun!

Alasdair Beckett-King has written another cracking who-dunnit that had me guessing until the end and racing through the pages faster than Grampa Banks’ ice-cream van could climb hills. Delivered with a healthy dose of humour and starring a brilliant and unlikely crime fighting duo who have the most wonderful of generation-transcending relationships, Montgomery Bonbon is heart-warming, crime-solving, moustache-y heaven.
