Old refurbished theatre, the Beryl, is re-opening.
Days before opening night, the ghost light – left on at night to appease the ghosts of actors – is extinguished and the production is plagues with problems.
As Alice digs into the Beryl’s past, sleuthing in a network of dark backstage corridors and cobwebby storage rooms, she discovers an unexpected mystery with a stolen diamond at its heart …
ALICE JONES: THE IMPOSSIBLE CLUE
Maths-whizz Alice has already solved a mystery or two.
Persuaded by wannabe sidekick Sammy to investigate a scientist’s disappearance, she’s soon entangled in her trickiest case yet. Dr Learner is reputed to have invented an invisibility suit, but is whacky science really to blame for his vanishing?
With the unlikely help of erstwhile nemesis Kevin, Alice solves the puzzle – only to face another. Should she reveal the truth, or protect her most devoted friend?
Looking at her skinny chicken legs poking up from the ground, you’d never think that Casey Quinn could ever be a ballerina.
But just because Casey can’t do ballet in high-tops doesn’t mean she can’t dance. She has more grace in her pinkie toe than the local rich girls put together. And Casey has a dream to dance in New York – and no one is going to stop her.
