The Detective’s Guide to New York City
by Nicki Greenberg
Pepper Stark is thrilled to be returning to the grit and glitter of New York City. She can’t wait to go exploring with her father, the Captain, and reunite with her fellow detectives, aspiring Broadway star Norah and up-and-coming pastry chef Sol. Even when the Captain invites along his new ‘friend’ Emmaline and her son Elliott, Pepper is determined to make the most of her time in the city that never sleeps.
But when notorious food critic Anthony ‘the Shark’ Sharkey is taken ill after dining at the restaurant where Sol works, Pepper finds herself entangled in another murky mystery. Pepper, Sol, Norah and – reluctantly – Elliott are facing an even bigger challenge than the Saffron Diamond affair, and the stakes have never been so high. If they don’t find the culprit, Sol’s career could be over … or worse. And the Big Apple might become the place where all of their dreams turn to dust.
From the bright lights of Broadway to back-alley speakeasies, Nicki Greenberg brings 1920s New York to life in this rollicking return to the world and characters of The Detective’s Guide to Ocean Travel.
